That is what we have been trying to explain to you. The test VM I created was partitioned as follows using the Ubuntu LiveCD.

I tested this to ensure that the VM booted properly, then rebooted from the Ubuntu LiveCD and copied the contents to P2. I then added the following to menu.lst:-
title Windows XP (SP3)
I then booted into this 'Live System' and mounted the BT3 usb image. I use Daemon Tools to provide virtual drives which I assign to the VM when I create it. Drive V: as it happens
title Ubuntu 8.04 Livesys
kernel /casper/vmlinuz boot=casper file=/dev/sda2/preseed/ubuntu.seed
I copied the contents of the BT3 directory to P2 and added the following to menu.lst:-
And that's it. A triple-boot VM with Windows XP, Ubuntu and BT3. The latter both being 'Live Systems'.
title BT3 Graphics mode (KDE)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 ro autoexec=xconf;kdm
The boot stanzas were adapted from the isolinux versions. The actual code shown above may contain minor errors as it was recreated from my notes and not taken from the VM which no longer exists. I deleted it after I'd learned what I set to.
Quite frankly, if you really are having such difficulty adapting the guides on here then perhaps this is something you should not be doing right now. You could easily render your system unbootable or even lose the entire contents of your HDU.
I've just received the following PM from a new member who has done EXACTLY what I was trying to warn the OP about
