I booted both backtrack and STD in the VM
softwared called Parallels.  I didn't do much with
them except boot them to see if they would boot.

They do not see the wireless card as a wireless
card.  If they see the network card at all, they
see it as a standard ethernet card.  That's why I
was asking about usb wireless cards
