Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Is there an overall simple pattern for doing multiboot cd/dvds?
\dvdroot\boot\ - here goes the grub-like menu stuff, plus the initrds and vmlinuz of each distro, renaming if needed, with the menu adjusted accordingly
\dvdroot\debian\ - just copy the damn files from the mounted image here
\dvdroot\kanotix\ - do the same
\dvdroot\yeswecanix\ - over and over
\dvdroot\etcaeterix\ - again and again
I've read a few how-tos, but I can't even see exactly how it should look. I have the impression that different people do it in different ways, and different distros also require somewhat different ways. That script suggested above, for example, it seems to not work with more recent versions of some the supported distros. I decided to try it with a few of the supported ones I've downloaded, to then mount the resulting iso and see how it is supposed to look and to be organized, but it actually suported just only one (sysrescuecd) so it wasn't of any help. Maybe I should sleep and try to grasp something from reading the script and the page explaining how it works.
It's about time to someone do some linux live whose sole function is that; it boots, scans for isos in itself, and create a menu to boot from these isos, either guessing the names somehow, or perhaps it must be stated in some file or folder names, I don't know. But I digress, that's just one item from my lazy-wishes list.
