I have been hearing kernel version 2.6.24 is problematic but if you are using the latest version it should be ok so long as you use b43.. which could be enabled in kernel config prior to building kernel image. This requires mac80211 stack and I think is much preferred over bcm43xx drivers.
Their support channel, #bcm-users even prefers users to upgrade their kernel to the latest should they be using 4311.
The catch is that you have to make sure that your lspci -n matches with their requirement as recently I have been seeing people who are confused with simple numbering problem of whats supposedly to be bcm4315 (no b43/bcm43xx support) was labelled as bcm4312 (partial support from b43, 2.4ghz only). So make sure that yours is 14e4:4311 (or whatever it is) for that matter.
Hey I got backtrack running on a HDD install and I even have compiz running extremely well.
