    If your noob do what i did, get the ipwraw module for bactrack 2(search the forums), place it in the modules folder of your livecd/USB flash drive.

    If you are putting it on a livecd drag the modules into the /bt/modules/ folder, extract the ISO to a location on your PC and use the .bat file located in the /bt folder.

    You might need to edit the .bat file to look like the below code.

    REM  ----------------------------------------------------
    REM  Batch file to create bootable ISO in Windows
    REM  usage: make_iso.bat c:\new-slax.iso
    REM  author: Tomas M. <hxxp://linux-live.0rg>
    REM  ----------------------------------------------------
    if "%1"=="" goto error1
    cd ..
    bt\tools\WIN\mkisofs.exe @bt\tools\WIN\config -o "%1" -A "%CDLABEL%" -V "%CDLABEL%" .
    goto theend
    echo A parameter is required - target ISO file.
    echo Example: %0 c:\target.iso
    goto theend
    echo Can't recreate isolinux.bin, make sure your current directory is writable!
    goto theend
    echo New ISO should be created now.

    Then you would open a command prompt and cd to the directory that the extracted iso is in, cd to the /bt folder and type "make_iso.bat c:\your-backtrack-folder-here\new.iso"

    Obviously editing it with the right folder.

    Hope i helped =/

    Default enable sources

    the text output you posted tells you that you have no sources enabled ( for now sources = wifi cards) so go to your kismet.conf file and enable the sources depending on what kind of wifi card you have, further information on this exact same problem is scattered all around this forum, just search kismet and possibly you wifi cards' chipset to narrow the results. peace
