Better bet: Install BT3 Final on a laptop, then add the GPS functionality to the system.
I assume you want the GPS to perform a WiFi auditing of some kind, either around the block, or around a campus.
What works well:
1. Burn BT3 final to a CDROM, as a LiveCD.
2. Boot the laptop with it.
3. With a good view of the sky, insert your USB GPS device. Backtrack should immediately recognize the GPS device. Verify with this command:
You should see USB0 in the listing.Code:ls -altr /dev/tts/
4. Now start gpsd:
5. Open kismet with this command:Code:gpsd /dev/tts/USB0
Kismet will launch, and the screen should show Lattitude & Longitude stats near the bottom. At times, depending on your USB device, it may take a few minutes for correct Lat & Long numbers to appear. Be patient.Code:start-kismet-ng
6. Kill kismet with Ctrl-C. Your kismet files will be available for analysis.
