How to install ALFA RTL8187L BT3 booted on MacBook?
Hello to everybody on this fascinating website.
I have just got around to using Backtrack 3 on my MacBook, by loading it from a CD, and holding down C at start-up. I have an ALFA AWUS036E wireless card ('the card'), without the capability of the 'H' model, but a worthy card nevertheless, so I am told.
I would like to know how I can install the card so that it can be recognised and used with BT3. When I have BT3 loaded up it does not pick up on anything inserted into the USB port. In particular have I erred in installation? I am unsure if it is necessary to partition my hard disk as well as booting from CD. The driver for the card do come with the installation CD, but obviously I cannot very well insert a CD as the drive is occupied by the BT3 ISO CD.
I am running Leopard 10.5.5, and my MacBook is the 4,1 version.
If you need more information please ask away. Any relevant help is more than welcome.
