Well,how difficult it is?You copy the files in a partition and set it first boot when want to start with it,it will be just like the live cd only you wont need the cd,it will be in the HD.It might run but don't know if will mess with grub somehow.
Beside the Live boot HD i think it might be installed normaly too,but you have to do it manually,very manually ;P

ah.. it seems things have changed since i have used backtrack! :p

anyway, this might help you out http://hydtech.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/how-to-install-backtrack-3-or-4-to-hard-drive-along-with-windows-xp-ubuntu-fedora-opensuse-on-lenovo-thinkpad-x60/.

its for bt3. the guy could install ubuntu, bt3 and win on the drive and grub didnt get messed up. so i think bt4 will work likewise
