You installed Backtrack in a virtual machine, that is the simple reason why it can't see your physical hardware. It is possible to pass through USB devices to a VM (at least with Virtualbox and VMware products, don't know about Parallels), but currently this is not possible with PCI devices. To use the wireless card you have to install Backtrack natively. This info is also available in the Backtrack FAQ:

Why cant BackTrack use wireless card X inside VMWare or Virtualbox ?

Any virtualisation software can only use USB wireless network cards as physical devices, all other types of wireless card are seen as virtual ethernet devices and can only be seen as a wireless device by the host and not by the guest operating system. So if you want to run BackTrack in VMWare or Virtualbox and have full wireless capabilities, make sure you are using a USB device.

I'm new to linux, is BackTrack a good place to start ?

Sorry, the simple answer to that is no.

BackTrack is a highly specialized distro, where a lot of normal tasks are not done automatically for you as they are in a mainstream distro.

Our best advice if you wish to start off using linux with BackTrack as your first linux operating system, is don't.

Start off by downloading a copy of Kubuntu (as it is a similar base operating system to BackTrack) boot into that and force yourself to do everything you are used to doing on a daily basis using that, preferably spending most of your time using the command line tools. When and only when you can perform all of those daily tasks without having to look-up the commands should you move to BackTrack.

Please don't take this as us saying you shouldn't use BackTrack, take it as friendly advice that you are letting yourself in for a whole world of pain and frustration if you are not fully comfortable performing administration of your own linux machine before you start with Backtrack.

You can't use any VM solution currently, PCI passthrough is highly experimental and not usable at this point. You have to install Backtrack natively on your machine to use the PCI wireless card.
But as stated before, Backtrack is distro for experts in network and security, it has absolutely no use for a newbie to the system. Learn to walk before you try to run.
