Be aware that not all .iso can be booted in this form.

Consideration has to be taken for how the lower level device access happens
when the .iso gets running.

Some .isos work on premounted loop mounted images others need explicit
naming of device root images and yet others need their internal grub menus
items extracted to the usb for direct use by grub.

Good luck.

Hi There,

I have been searching the web, but as of yet, I haven't found neither an
answer nor a Howto to get the following achieved using GRUB2.

What I want to achieve is this:

Lets say I have several Live-CD's/DVD's such as Knoppix, Ophcrack,
Backtrack, a simple Win XP and Win7DVD and I have a bootable device such as
an USB-Stick or a DL-DVD and I want to have these tools on this one device
and once PC or whatsoever has botted from this device I'll get a menu to
choose what I want to boot.

AFAIK it should be possible with GRUB2 but now here comes my question, how?
has anyone of you already made it and if so, would one of you tell me how to
do that?
