    When you say "installed it into vmware", did you d/l the iso and boot/install from that. or did you d/l the ready-made vm image??

    Also, you'll need a USB wifi device like the Alfa mentioned all over the forums

    Yes, you can use your internal wifi with the livecd

    Your Windows partition won't be touched, unless you deliberately mount your Windows partition within BT and mess around with it........

    Have a read up on live cd's

    Check the forums and wiki for general compatibility issues.........

    And test things out yourself - experiment a little - you'd be surprised what you can learn with a little application on your own part

    WOW!

    What do these kind of people want?

    "can you please answer all of my questions, really quickly, just to save *me* from wasting *my* time finding out for *myself*!?!?

    OK, we'll waste *our* time on your behalf then, shall we?

    You don't like experimenting and finding things out for yourself, because you're "...to lazy to fix it..." if it goes wrong?

    All you need to do is boot the CD and see if it detects your wireless card.......
    But anyway, I already answered you, stating "YES" you can use your internal card with BT3.

    It looks very much like you only intend to become a "1337 h4x0r" overnight and "crack de wep" with your new found "m4d 5k1llZ" and "IPW-fu" so I'm sure you won't be needing our help any more

    Guys like you give newbies a bad name
