Total newbie here.
I burnt BackTrack2 into a CD, booted my laptop, and everything went fine. When I try to run Kismet from the Shell, I get the following error:
Server Options: none
Client Options: none
Waiting for server to start before starting UI
Suid priv-dropping disabled - This may not be secure
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled
Enabling channel hopping
Enabling channel splitting
FATAL: No packsources were enabled. Make sure that if you use an enablesource line that you specify the correct sources.
When I run iwconfig I get:
lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions
My laptop is a HP Pavillion tx1000 Notebook, the processor is an AMD Turion 64, 2 gig RAM, 32-bit system, the network adapter is a Broadcom 4321AG 802.11a/b/gdraft-n, and a NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller.
My research indicates that the Broadcom Network Adapter should work fine, however, it doesn't seem to.
Please help!!! Take in consideration that I am totally inexperienced with Linux commands.

I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
New member. I thought my first posting didn't go through because I never received a confirmation.
Don't run it from the console.
There are some startup scripts involved to allow it to auto-detect your (supported) interface, when launched via the menu entry.
Run it from the menu entry.
Thank you, I will. However, I already use Vista in my laptop. Would Ubuntu OS overwrite my hard drive if I install it? Would you suggest a partition in my HD for Linux?
