Drivers for BackTrack 2

Ok im totally lost with this...first time using linux on anything other then VM where the network settings are shared. Im trying to run BT2 on a Mac OSX Leopard computer and when i run the live CD there is no internet connection. Im guessing i need the drivers for the ethernet and whatever else doesn't work (i havent even figured out what all isn't working). Does anyone know where to find Mac drivers for BT2? I searched google and usually it comes up with mac address type results (thanks apple for making such an annoyingly named computer). Well any help would be appreciated.

It probably isn't Apple specific hardware, it is probably just standard Intel or similar stuff. Find out the exact chipsets of the hardware, then find the drivers.
