Back Track 5

Hello there,

I am really new to Linux and its related things.

Well, I downloaded Linux Mint and was using it for a while.
Now I have downloaded backtrack 5. When I downloaded linux mint it was so easy, I just installed it and I got dual boot(that is when I restart my system, I get to choose which OS)
But that did not work when I downloaded Backtrack 5. Well, its an ISO file, so I need to boot it after writing the file into a DVD and make it bootable.
That is not a problem, see BT is basically a distro just like ubuntu and debian and fedora?

I dont get the difference between them.
Please elaborate.

Thank you
