Making multiversion install USB stick

Hi all

At work we have (eventually) decided to move most Linux boxes to  
Ubuntu. We are standardising on Ubuntu 8.04LTS for most servers, 9.04  
for servers where more newer libs are needed and 9.04 for  
workstations. So, given a combination of three different versions of  
Ubuntu and two different architectures (32/64bit), this six images in  
total. An 8GB USB stick doesn't cost much these days, so would it  
possible or hard to have all of these on a pen drive and setup grub or  
something for me to choose? USB-creator is nice, but using <10% of USB  
device (the 8GB one) or having six smaller ones, one to each version/ 
architecture, seems a waste.

Thank you for your input
