Interesting question.  Just thinking out loud but it would seem to be
possible on a thumb drive.  Install Karmic on a drive, mount it and then use
the partition manager to install the next version within Karmic.  Lather and
repeat.  Then grub would allow you to select which OS you wanted to use.
Have no clue as to if it would work or how one would go about moving a
working version to DVD but it would seem, in theory, to be doable.
