    I will look around on this forum to look after vmware fusion and backtrack. If you have any links it would be nice

    Once again, vmware only uses usb devices for monitor, injection, etc.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    so as i understand i will need to use an external usb key to use backtrack 4 on my macbook unibody?! Because in a lot of computers wirelesscard are recognized as usb devices.

    So will my internal wifi be recognized as a usb or must i buy an external wifi card?

    If you're running vmware you have to use a usb card. I've not tried to boot my unibody macbookpro off my BT disk yet. Don't see the point, that's why I use supported hardware. I do know that my macbook will boot just fine and has monitor mode for the wifi card.

    Wouldn't the point be to use the internal wifi card?

    No, I don't see the point running non mac operating systems on Apple hardware. They're not really designed with that in mind. They just recently starting allowing Windows on it. The nice thing is they provide the proper drivers for windows. Now that BackTrack is Ubuntu based it will probably be a bit easier, like I said, it boots just fine with my first gen intel MacBook. I just find it easier to use an older windows based laptop with known good hardware support. BackTrack works great on Macs in vmware, but you need a supported usb wifi adapter.
