Solved!!! the problem is in 10.04 if you get unetbootin from the synaptic, it doesnt have the option. if you download it from their website then u get the option of making it persistent.

this helped me because if let say you want to create 2 partitions on usb and in one partition you want to create live backtrack and in another partition you want persistent ubuntu, windows cant do that since it doesnt see two partition on usb it only sees the first one. in ubuntu it sees everything
