You need qemu or virtualbox and the iso files.
However you need 1 distribution installed in order to run these.

Download the iso
install qemu or virtualbox, and run geexbox from the iso file.

The qemu is installed on my usb with DSL , but I need to configure the qemu to recognizes GEEXBOX.

I thinking to put some grub or menu to select the type of linux i need to run it.

The DSL from my usb have :
Code:
1st-boot.bat
boot.msg
...
|-- qemu
|   |-- License
|   |   |-- README-SDL.txt
|   |   |-- license
|   |   `-- readme.txt
|   |-- bios.bin
|   |-- fmod.dll
|   |-- linux_boot.bin
|   |-- qemu-img.exe
|   |-- qemu.exe
|   |-- sdl.dll
|   |-- vgabios-cirrus.bin
|   `-- vgabios.bin
|-- readme.txt
|-- syslinux.cfg
Do you know some tutorial to change this ...?

I don't understand your question
Qemu is a virtual emulator.
This means, you start DSL, then you start qemu and install another OS in a virtual machine.
If you want different OS on the USB and grub, you need to install each OS to the USB and run it from grub.
