There is a tool in pen drive linux that allows you to boot directly with multiple iso files. And here is a sample in the menu.lst which allows you to choose which iso file you want to boot.

title Fedora 12
find --set-root /Fedora-12-i686-L.iso
map /Fedora-12-i686-L.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
kernel /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper persistent iso-scan/filename=/ubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386.iso splash
initrd /casper/initrd.lz

I'm just using it on my 8gb flash drive and the location of the iso file is in the flash drive itself. Is it possible to reference other locations. So that I could boot from it, without limitations. because the flash drive can only contain 8gb of data. Is it possible? Anyone here tried this before?

what exactly are you trying to boot from? other ISO files on the flash drive? other drives? – quack quixote Jun 13 '10 at 1:24
