Is this even possible? Wireless mix!

I just wanted to know if this was even possible and how to do it?
I have a windows XP machine. The motherboard has a built in wireless card. I have a linux box that I want to run Airsnort on. Is there anyway to access the wireless card from the linux box? Would the linux box be able to control the wireless card?
Any info would be appreciated!

You might be able to access the wireless card through Windows network bridging, but I would bet serious cash that you'r not going to be able to run Airsnort this way. If I remeber correctly, Airsnort is going to require direct access to the card, and the network bridge between the Linux box and Windows isn't going to give you that.
