I'm already sick of Vista, so I am back on my Ubuntu laptop. After goofing for an hour or so I realized I have never installed Kismet even though I've got wireless working.

But there is a problem, I haven't had to install ANYTHING in Linux thanks to Automatix.

I searched the Ubuntu Forums for an answer and got nothing.

So to Google I turned and ended up with...

sudo apt-get install kismet

It does whatever it does then I have to edit the conf file.

vi /home/root/usr/local/etc/kismet.conf

And all I have are lots of ~ in terminal and only the file name at the bottom. None of I can edit.

Anyone who has installed Kismet PLEASE tell me how. I'm a Linux noob.
