You can try using your XP driver with ndiswrapper.

This might be useful.

I have the same network adapter on my Debian computer at home, i know that Backtrack 4 is based on Debian, Is Backtrack 3 based on Debian also?
If so ill post here the way i installed the Ralink driver (it was a bit tricky).
