    The hardest part is partitioning. Namely, finding a chunk of free space to put this new OS. When I do this, I don't use the installer's partition manager but instead use Gparted. As long as you don't use the delete key, you should be able to right click on the partitions you want to resize and hit resize/move. Once you have your freespace, it should be easy to install. Just make sure you select the right partition of free space to put Backtrack in. As long as you select that manually (perhaps under advanced/choose your own partition format, I am not familiar with Backtrack installation off the top of my head), you should be able to install it just fine.


    Thanks,
