    Question Backtrack 4 Kismet.conf file... where is it??

    Ok, this may be a dumb question... but I can't for the life of me find out where my kismet is storing it's configuration... trying to help a friend get kismet up and running - I've got it working great on my laptop, when i boot up kismet it notices there is no capture source and asks me for one.. but when I go to look in /etc/kismet, where the kismet.conf file should be to manually specify such things, it's not there... and since said friend isn't getting the message asking him to add a capture source, I'm assuming that's where he'd have to manually add it... so my question is... where is kismet's config file at if not in /etc/kismet??
