Hi, Welcome to LQ!

LQ has a fantastic search function that may save you time waiting for an answer to a popular question.

With over 4 million posts to search it's possible the answer has been given.

You run Backtrack in vmware/hosted on some other OS (like gnu/Linux).

or you use vmware with M$win to boot gnu/Linux.

Threre's a huge difference.

And although I have no experience with vmware, (I use vbox) I thought to clarify this concept.

Regars Glenn.

<edit> you might find it worth while to check the PCIID of you devices to see if they have been documented and accepted into the gnu/Linux kernel. Generally on a gnu/Linux system and bsd types you can type "lspci" to see the list of pci devices connected to the system.</edit>

Cheers Glenn

If you are a Linux beginner then Backtrack is not the right distribution for you. Backtrack is a distribution made from security and network experts for security and network experts.
I would recommend to start with a distribution that is more aimed towards the beginner, like Mint, MEPIS or Ubuntu.

To your question: VMware is providing a virtual PC, in which your Backtrack is running. It knows nothing about the physical hardware on your PC, since it is running on the virtual hardware.
However, it is possible to pass through USB devices to the virtual PC. I don't use VMware, so for instructions how to do that please consult your manual.
