A Grub 2 advantage

I have been leery of Grub2, but just discovered a feature that I do not think Grub1 has - the
ability to boot from an iso image. I got this from a posting on multi-boot USB sticks.
You can load many isos on one stick and have Grub2 put up a menu to select which to boot.

See http://www.panticz.de/MultiBootUSB

Note that different types of isos may need slightly different boot instructions - I have successfully
put a casper-booting iso and a standard install-booting iso on a stick.


In spite of being an unscrupulous business, there are three scruples in a 
DRAM.   How many microphones are there in a Megaphone?
