I'm going to install both Ubuntu and BackTrack in VMWare Workstation 8.

If I were to install these on my HD, I'd have to make a partition for each. Is this the same procedure for installing these OS's in VMWare?

In VMWare you create two virtual machines each with it's own Virtual Hard Disk (The virtual hard disks are just files that reside on a partition in the host machine's HD).
