Billix Multiboot USB setup for Finnix and Lenny?

Question here is how to optimize Billix bootup on a 256MB+ USB pendrive for the following:

dsl4 Run Damn Small Linux 4.4.10 (Default)
dsl3 Run DSL 3.4.12
finnix Run Ryan Finnie's Finnix 92.1
lenny Install Debian Lenny (Netboot)
ntpwd Windows NT/2K/XP Pwd Crack
memtest memtest86+
Billix href

Both DSL .iso knoppix/KNOPPIX loopfile breakdowns are 50 MB.
Finnix's is 110 MB.
All from liveCDs for arch=i386 and all are Debian-based.
Prefer to leave a single and larger larger syslinux and isolinux in pendrive /<root> folder, and create separate sub-folders for dsl3's, dsl4's, and finnix's initrd.gz and linux24/linuz.
Wouldn't mind also, finding out how to effectively get rid of the U3 bug present in SanDisk USB pendrives using Linux-only (not w Win2K/XP!!)

Alternate billix howto at

TY for more detailed assistance!
