Hi Ross,

It's been forever since I have had to make a multiboot USB. Ever since I got 
one of these, life in the land of multiboot has been smooth sailing:


I know, probably a heavy price to pay, and then you have to have the hard 
drive or SSD to go in the enclosure, but it saved me a ton of heartache with 
having to mess with GRUB.

Just my 2c, take it or leave it. :)
