Does anybody know of a way to convert an rfmon capture file (raw 802.11)
to standard libpcap?  The goal is to use 'normal' data stream analysis
tools to analyze a previously captured data file.  One specific goal
would be to use tcpreplay to play back an rfmon capture file over an
Ethernet interface.  It would seem that tehtereal would be able to do
this but I haven't figured it out yet.

Raw as generated by what means? There must be some delimiter for each packet
so it is trivial to read each each packet and slap a pcap header struct on
the front before writing the packet out to a pcap compatible file (one to
which you have already written a pcap file header).  Once complete, load it
into ethereal and analyze.
