Can grub detect iso and add them to the list?


Hi All
Can I put several iso's on a usb and boot from the usb to grub, detect iso's and add them to the list, then select one and boot?
Then I can try different things, make an iso try it on my test machine with out having to make bunches on cds

Thanks

ISO can't be booted with grub. Also ISO are not supported in the grub.

You might want to install a lightweight distribution on your USB device and VirtualBox on it. Then from VirtualBox, you'll be able to boot ISOs.
