Question Wubi or other app for other Linux OS


I need a way to install Backtrack or other distros in windows. I already have Ubuntu installed using Wubi. IS there away to install other distros such as Backtrack 3 inside windows alongside Ubuntu. I don't wish to partition my hard drive.

You could try virtualisation: google for Qemu, VirtualBox, and VMWare - see what you think.

either run it in vmware, qemu, virtual-box or install BT3 to a usb drive and run it from there? What does it have that Ubuntu doesn't? I would bet that any of the apps in BT are also available in ubuntu.

I wish to install Backtrack the same way I installed Ubuntu using a program similar to wubi that I run without emulation and choose which OS I won't to boot. Not using qemu or virtual box or vmware etc, an complete installation on a partition. Wubi alternative for other os version in my case Backtrack

There is nothing like Wubi for any other distro.
