Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Once again, (you should have easily come up with this with using the forum search): VMware, as the name states, is software that gives you virtual machines with virtual hardware, not the physical hardware in your PC. Your wireless won't work in VMware, unless it is attached to your USB and you have configured your VM to pass it through to your guest OS.
Or in short: Use Backtrack on your real hardware, not in a VM.
