    how to burn DVD with multiple installation iso's and other supporting data

    I have several computers with varying architectures (32 & 64 bit). Each machine also requires unique driver sets to download (like B43 firmware/drivers for wireless connection). I also have other files that make setting up a machine easier. I'd like to make this stuff available on the same DVD or USB but not sure where to start. Before I go burning DVD's with data and with fire after ruining them. Anyone have some thoughts on how to approach this?

    I've read I can de-construct an iso and add to it, but that won't work with 2 ubuntu live installs; I see how I could de-consruct my 64bit iso and add a new folder and data to it.

    I've also read and thought that I could treat it like a drive that can be partitioned? Not sure I understand the mechanics of properly setting that up. Multiple, selectable, bootable partitions on a DVD: 3 partitions, 1 for 32bit, 1 for 64 bit, and 1 for supporting documentation... Would the DVD need its own boot loader?

    I'm looking into this thread as a solution now: thread

    Any thoughts or direction would be greatly appreciated...

    Thanks for the direction Offgrid and Bashing. I'll read up and attempt somethings in your references; I appreciate the direction! Thanks.

    The problem with the pre-built tools appears that ubuntu 12.10 isn't a supported distro!
    So I'm not burning 32 and 64 isos based on a manual approach:
    here

    Still not sure how I can add supporting files without unpacking each installation iso and customizing the liveCD... which is pretty cool. Although I just wanted to have a directory with files after installs versus customizing each install. We'll see where it goes.

    Thanks. You're replies have been very insightful

    you might be able to do something similar with USB sticks and Unetbootin, as described here:
