It talks like their is more then one cd on the flash drive so how do I do that? What I'm i doing wrong each time I install a new one on to the flash drive the old one does not work. I have one flash drive that is 4g.

Check this:

If you copy/paste these into terminal you should end up with a multi Boot Flash drive.

Note that if you are running an older version of Ubuntu, pre grub2, you should run these booted from the Live CD.

I used the panticz site (which is actually a bash script to create the whole thing with those ISOs) and these sites.

I was given this also

http://tazbuntu.blogspot.com/2009/05/multibootin-with-unetbootin.html

not doing any better at figuring this one out either. I want to dule boot Billix, f-secure-rescue-cd, and xununtu live 64. how do i do that? Billix and f-secure-rescue-cd both have folders called boot and KNOPPIX. Also the boot folder also have the syslinux.cfg as well the just the /syslinux.cfg in the main drive not in a folder.
