I have my lilo installed to the partition, not the MBR, and use an additional bootloader (Acronis OS Selector) installed to the MBR. Using this approach I still needed to install lilo as well as the Acronis bootloader otherwise would not detect the OS at all.I also like to use OSL2000 bootloader to manage my boots.
I dont want that linux is booting from MBR !!!
I have my HDD partitioned into 4 parts, only one of which are dedicated to BT3. The installation procedure that you describe is correct, and there are several excellent step-by-step guides on how to actually do this posted on the forum.Tell me if i understand the installation procedure correctly, I create 3 partitions as backtrack needs, and then run the live CD so i can install backtrack from CD via KDE->System->BackTrack Installer.
