Angry buning multiple iso images


hi
I am interested in making and burnung multiple isos in one cd.I ges first I have to extract them, then join them together by a menu and convert them again into a new iso, just I would need more detail in the mater.the reason of this operation is the following: imagine you have downloaded small distros like poppy linux and others, so one would not fill up your cd at all.in stead of waste capacity of the cd would be greate to know how to do multiple iso handling

My guess is that you would also have to install a boot-loader onto the image. I've only read about this done on USB-sticks but I assume it would be possible on a CD as well. according to this post http://reboot.pro/9586/ you can use the tool grub4dos to make the CD you want.

Good luck!

Look at how maybe ultimate boot cd and other web pages for how they do that. There are a few ways.
