    Does anyone know of a way to take several different ISO's (multiple Windows ISO's, Ubuntu, Hiren's Boot CD, etc.) and put them onto a flash drive from which I can boot and select one?
    I've tried several different utilities thus far - unetbootin, YUMI, XBoot - but none have allowed me to successfully add all my images.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Are you looking to enable "persistence" (your settings etc saved) for your images?
    If so have you tried this ...
    "Saving Changes: Persistence can be added to Ubuntu based distributions by using the PDL Casper-RW creator to first create the file on your USB. Then, simply add the word persistent to the append line of corresponding .cfg file found in the /multiboot/menu directory. Only one distribution can use persistence."
    From here: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/ and scroll down to 'Known Issues'.

    Hope I'm not barking up the wrong tree?
