USB Multiboot: XP Setup, Debian Setup, UBCD, Backtrack
Hello all,
i've been trying to build an USB pen drive that would be able to launch the following:

-Windows XP Setup ISO (custom nLite version, boots on SETUPLDR.bin)
-Debian Lenny Setup ISO (boots on g2ldr)
-UBCD 5 ISO (boots on isolinux.bin)
-Backtrack 4 Final ISO (boots on ??)

At first I tried to integrate my XP Setup into UBCD menus, it works but loads the whole (540mb) ISO into ram, and it takes ages.. I'd like to make it as quick as lauching the Setup CD itself.
CODE
LABEL -
MENU LABEL Windows XP Setup
TEXT HELP
Windows XP Setup
ENDTEXT
LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/custom/wxp-sp3.iso
APPEND iso raw



Then I installed grub4dos on the USB stick and tried the following menu.lst
CODE
title WXP SP3 SETUP
find --set-root /iso/wxp-sp3.iso
map /iso/wxp-sp3.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)

title Debian 5.04 Lenny i386 SETUP
find --set-root /iso/debian-504-i386.iso
map /iso/debian-504-i386.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)

title Ultimate Boot CD LIVE
find --set-root /iso/ubcd50.iso
map /iso/ubcd50.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)

title BackTrack 4 Final LIVE
find --set-root /iso/bt4-final.iso
map /iso/bt4-final.iso (hd32)
map --hook
root (hd32)
chainloader (hd32)


The XP Setup crashes after the first part (copying files, and then blue screen...), the Backtrack ISO can't find squashfs, UBC programs do not seem to launch..... did not try with debian but it looks like i'm on the wrong way.

I'm not quite sure how to do such a multiboot USB.. It's possible for me to unpack the ISOs on the key, but i'd prefer to keep them in one piece. I'm ready to use other bootloaders though i'd prefer to keep g4d. Do you have any tracks for me to search?..

Thanks in advance
