I dont even start to install backtrack. I onley unpack iso on exhdd on my 6. exhdd disk and tryed to boot from him and install on my 5. exhdd. I put in BIOS on HDD priority exhdd 6. and press F12 to chose USB HDD to boot from. Btw my thre internal discs r on sata 2 and other external 3 r on USB. So i need some app to make my 6. exhdd bootable with backtrack on it and when instalation begins to put backtrack on exhdd 5..

That won't work. Your post is hard to read. How do you have Ubuntu installed? Is it a wubi? Do you have it on its own partition? It's possible to use Grub2 with Ubuntu to boot an iso file (Backtrack) but there is no guarantee it will work with Backtrack. If you do manage to install Backtrack you will either need to install its bootloader to the mbr (overwriting windows) or create an entry in the windows bootloader for it.

Have you tried putting Backtrack on a USB/flash drive and installing from there? You could use unetbootin in Ubuntu.
