Laptop and Wireless Card Issues

Hello all expert linux user, i wonder this latop Toshiba Satellite Pro A210 -EZ2203x is compatible with backtrack 2 or 3. This latop comes with a default atheros based card. I wonder this card workds perfectly with injection, attack modes(1-5), wpa, wpa2 and good performance of collective IV.
Does this come with PCMCIA slow ?
What is ur recommendations ? How about the netgear wpn511 card?

Although I have no concrete evidence, I would think you can install Backtrack on that laptop. You may have to tweak it a bit and compile some drivers for some hardware just like most all Linux distributions.
Best part is, is that Backtrack may set up your wireless card for injection automatically without having to patch you wireless device driver.
You may also want to read the forums at Aircrack-ng's web site. Aircrack is far better than snort and the rest.
