    I used this tutorial to install Backtrack 2 on my HDD with Windows XP Pro (SP2):
    hxxp://xxx.offensive-security.com/movies/dualboot/dualboot.html

    I use a Windows XP Professional System with 2 Partitions C: & D: (and SP2)

    when I will start qtpartet came this:

    bt ~ # mount
    tmpfs on / type tmpfs (rw)
    proc on /proc type proc (rw)
    sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
    usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw,devgid=10,devmode=0666)
    bt ~ # qtparted
    Warning: Unable to open /dev/hdb read-write (Read-only file system). /dev/hdb has been opened read-only.
    No Implementation: Support for opening ntfs file systems is not implemented yet.
    Error: Could not detect file system.
    No Implementation: Support for opening ntfs file systems is not implemented yet.
    Segmentation fault
    bt ~ #

    What file systems are the two partitions installed with?

    I'm guessing that both are NTFS?

    Default ntfs

    Writing to an NTFS is unreliable (except by Microsoft). For your own protection the NTFS partition is automatically set to 'read-only'.

    Even under OpenBSD it is not recommended!

    You should change drive D to fat32.

    I created a 3rd Partition with Fat32 but the failed are the same.

    I must created a Primary or Logicaly Partition? I created an Primary.

    Must the Partition are "aktive"? I created a not aktive Partition because when aktive Windows not boot.

    and what is when i deinstall Windows, make 3 Partitions, Install Backtrack2 and then I install Windows?

    work this?

    You should be delete 2nd and 3rd partition then then start form the beginning.
    Follow this method:

    bt ~ # mount
    bt ~ # umount /mnt/hda1
    bt ~ # qtparted
