Help with anonymizing backtrack virtual machine


I have a spare laptop I'm trying to set up for anonymous browsing and I'd like to try and pentest my main computer for fun.
I am following this guide to set up the anonymous enivironment:
http://anonymous.livelyblog.com/2012...nternet-usage/
I'm running lubuntu 12.04 as the host OS.
I'm using dsl in a virtual machine in a firewall.
I'm have backtrack 5 installed in a second virtual machine which is what I want to be as anonymous as possible.
The problem I'm having is towards the bottom of that write up in part 16 step 24. When I type "ifconfig eth0 10.0.3.2" in backtrack it says "No such device".
Also when I type "ifconfig -a" eth0 isn't listed.
Does anybody have any advice?
Is there a better way to achieve what I want to do?
Thanks in advance.

"Does anybody have any advice?

Yes, get way more trained before you attempt this. This issue is one of the most basic tasks. If you can't do that without our help then just get a good live cd.

Edit.

I tend to hate users of Backtrack as they try to use this distro for suspect and maybe illegal tasks.

Are you saying you have lbuntu host w/ a dsl guest that is hosting a backtrack 5 guest? No wonder you're having headaches. This is also going to make your pentesting incredibly difficult. I would strongly recommend you reconsider this, and if you want increased anonymity look in to something like tails or liberte to browse anonymously.

If you want to pentest look in to setting up Backtrack on a liveCD/USB/SDcard and maybe with persistant if you need to make changes to the system.

However if you're really stuck on this setup you've got then it sounds like you're having a configuration issue, make sure your vbox/vmware/etc. guest tools are installed. Run an (case sensitive)
Code:
lspci |grep Ethernet
and make sure your card is recognized on the backtrack system.
