Just go ahead and install BackTrack. When you're done, boot to Ubuntu, and then execute this from the terminal:

sudo burg-install /dev/the_target_disk

Replace the_target_disk with the device name of the disk you want to reinstall Burg to. In most cases it is sda or hda, but yours can be different. After that, run this:

sudo update-burg

Good luck!
