    Hello d00ds,

    We got three linux distros on this month's (APR 06) CD/DVD, viz. DSL (on CD), Gentoo & Puppy Linux. Since the distros are quite small, i.e, they can be written to one CD, But, is there any way in which I can write all images to a single disc and use a boot loader from one of them to multi boot into them, whenever I boot from that CD?

    Hey, interesting question there. Here's a brilliant article:
    http://www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=06/03/16/1724219

    Here's an excerpt:

    Code:
    The Nautopia script currently supports Knoppix, Kanotix, Kurumin, Livux, MEPIS, ProMEPIS, Slax, Aurox, BerryLinux, Basilisk, Adios, PCLinuxOS, MandrakeMove, Gnoppix, RiP, SystemRescueCD, Ultimate Boot CD, and INSERT distributions. Grab a couple of live CDs of any of the above listed distributions, download the script, and let's get started.
    Here's the link to guys who provide the script:

    Nice suggestion man..ive been looking for the similar idea to burn them all in a single disk coz these days there are the Linux flavors just coming in FEW MBs and doing them all on the individual disk is time consuming and the waste of the resources all well...thanks again..

    And to add more to the bliss, check these cool urls out
