    You can do this in nearly any version of Linux. However, your question is not specific. Define sharing? Heck, a cheap router allows you to share one internet connection, and routers like the WRT54GL just happen to run linux.

    So, why use backtrack for this? If you need to share the internet, why not use a router? Or, does your ISP mandate an internal card?

    Just as an aside, I plan on using Backtrack 4 for everything. It's gonna be my main OS, used for doing everything a PC can possibly do. I'm gonna watch Trailer Park Boys, gonna burn DVD's, gonna surf the web, gonna do pentesting, all that crap. . .

    Back to the point though:

    Any Linux distribution be set up to act as a router, with the option of using Network Address Translation (NAT) or not. It involves the use of IP Masquerading which is built into the kernel. I did a web search just there and came up with the following:

    (I haven't read either article but it seems to be what you're looking for)
