    Default 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.

    Thanks,

    Lalu

    Hi guys, has anyone got some advice to offer?

    I have tried installing BT3 with Parallels, but when it loads up all that is produced is a black flashing picture, and there is no user-friendly desktop to be seen.

    To simplify my issue, how can I get BT3 whilst booted from CD to recognise my external wireless card?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nobody has an answer? Or are you guys just unwilling to give a girl a leg-up?
