I am getting a 8gb Sony Tiny Micro Vault, which is a little larger than a micro SD card. The advantage is this Tiny Micro Vault is USB! WOW!!

So, I want to install a variety of OS's on it like:
Ubuntu (version??)
Backtrack 3
Rescue CD
LNX 4n6

Other ideas?

I also need a folder for storage of files.

How do I load 3+ OS's on a USB drive with GRUB or LILO? Can I load 5 or am I stuck with only 4 primary partitions?

What's the deal here?

With 8 GB you might get away with 2 OS. I'd stick to Ubuntu 8.04.1
