Create multiple .iso cd or dvd from multisession

If i have, for example, older GParted livecd which i burned in multisession mode(to be able to use rest of its free space later) or other cd|dvd that takes low space on disc itself..can i burn(add) new GParted livecd onto that same disc with choice which one i want run on boot or i need empty cd|dvd? I know that if disk isn't re-writeable with erase option it might be not possible but maybe then there is way to write new .iso and merge with existing content and somehow run from terminal console new one?

It would probably not work as you describe. However, you can combine several .iso images into one cd or dvd with a menu to select which image to boot. There is a script called which will help to make it possible. You can get instructions and the script here:


burn, iso, merge, multisession, write
