Wireshark on Linux ought to be able to sniff these frames if the
wireless card is in the right mode (not managed, not AP, but the other
mode that I can't recall the name of right now).
If you're stuck with Windows, I've used Airsnort with a decent success
rate, with Atheros hardware. You can tell it to save to a libpcap file,
and then open that in Wireshark.
You can't sniff them directly on most Windows cards. (Though the
Wireshark folks sell a USB device that does allow you to. It's called
AirPcap, or something like that.)
