    What does the Wiki say?
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    (lame i know, but its still funny)

    m4rio52001, there are countless threads that pose the question what is the best wifi card all over this forum.

    this one is one of the more important ones:
    Most complete Card Driver Chipset
    hxxp://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=7375

    But to be honest, a great starting wireless card that this forums is constantly flooded with questions about is the Hawking HWUG1. Its apart of the rt73 chipset and is very good in my opinion (I own one and am very please with it). But you can find someone else you like, but be ready to do some of your own research and know that for something good you have to buy online and not go to some retailer. For good quality your going to have to spend some extra $$.

    Best of luck on your endevours.

    And there most definitely is no need to start multiple threads with this same question.

    The USB version includes Compiz Fusion and the kernel sources, the CD version does not in order to fit on a single CD.

    It is the very same operating system, so yes naturally the commands will be the same. As for your second question, here is an excellent, and severely underutilized, link that will provide you with the answer easily.

    Kismet, being a passive sniffer, does not inject. It needs to be configured in order to know what wireless interface to use.
