Unhappy Local files with ISO via VMware

Hello all,
I'm a bit confused. I've installed mandrake and suse in vmware somewhat successfully from orignally iso images - but I'm trying to install (locally) Backtrack. I've got the iso running no problem inside vmware, but what I want to do is install it fully locally again, inside vmware. Backtrack only has info regarding partioning a system and installing via a dual boot. Is there an easy way to install backtrack inside of wmware? should I follow a general redhat install? Maybe it's the iso image that's confusing me. Thanks.
