Are you talking about Backtrack as listed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BackTrack?
If so, that is a LiveCD that you boot the computer from. Not something you can install on the hard drive.

I just reread the wikipedia page. It appears you can install it on the hard drive but you need a free partition to install it to as it's a Linux distro like Ubuntu.

Edit: There are instructions at http://wiki.remote-exploit.org.....nstall_GUI on installing it though they seem to require a bit of Linux command line knowledge to use.
