Can you patch the debian-installer script to support the new version?

This is awesome. I just did a dcfldd with the iso to my flash and it worked perfectly. No more Cd/DVD's for me.
I didn't notice that the script ran isohybrid at the end until today. Now I 'm going to make a super huge iso with every possible supported distro and tool to my usb HD and see how it comes out.
On a side note. Nothing to do with my revelation above , kubuntu and the gnome version (both 11.04) just hangs on the splash screen when loading.
Also, the latest version of geexbox freezes on start menu. works as standalone CD so it's not the iso.
Backtrack 5 not working:

Make sure you trust every script in the plugins folder - all these scripts will get root access!

No new bugfixes to report, but I now have seperate plugins for Debian i386 netinst (debian-install.iso) and Debian amd64 netinst (debian-install64.iso). See if using them both works. I think it might.
After your last git update, i receive this error when backtrack is not part of the collection:
./functions.sh: line 144: multicd-working/boot/backtrack/backtrack.cfg: No such file or directory
Can you make Endian Firewall a sub menu like you did for backtrack?
Can the full windows 7 DVD be used instead of the recovery? I know it's big but I'm working on my super iso to put on my USB HD.

Sure. I'll do that soon.Can you make Endian Firewall a sub menu like you did for backtrack?
I'm not sure. I've never tried it.Can the full windows 7 DVD be used instead of the recovery? I know it's big but I'm working on my super iso to put on my USB HD.
Thanks for the speedy reply.
There is still the issue of ubuntu not booting.

Other that the obvious fact that it seems I can reach you here should I need, can you tell me what the benefits are in using your script vs. yumi? Your script and yumi are the best options I've found and I just want to decide on my direction.
Toshiba Satellite L505-S6946
Precise, Fedora, Kororaa, Bodhi
You could always use them both
YUMI, I think, works with USB but not with a CD/DVD. It uses SYSLINUX to boot the USB drive. Unlike with MultiCD, you could use it and still have your USB drive be writable (MultiCD uses an ISO image with isohybrid, which makes it read-only.)
Also, YUMI is a GUI program for Windows, while MultiCD is a text-mode script that only works on Linux.
If I want to add both the 32 and 64 bit version of win7recovery, can I make a copy of the win7recovery.sh script, rename it and make the necessary changes in the new file?
check the attachments
btw: in case anyone is looking for the win 7 recovery disk: http://cybernetnews.com/windows-7-recovery-disc/
Ok, I tried this and both 32 and 64 have a "windows failed to start....." error. So I tried the original script and just the 32bit win7recovery.iso and I get the same thing. So the problem seems to be that the default scripts for the default iso don't work. If you can get that to work then I guest my new scripts for both version will work.
Just to confirm, I burned the win7recovery iso directly and it works so the problem is not the iso.
