Thanks, pal, I will try it.. like "kismet -c livetap,rtap0,<anything>"??

You can do packet injection on ipw2200, but has many limitations :((
- Card has to be associated to any AP (on the channel you want to inject) while injecting (you can inject to a different ap).
- Card has to be in managed mode (you can still sniff through rtap0).
- Only data frames can be sent (no auth/assoc/disassoc/deauth, etc).
