easy2boot is really multiboot.
You just have to put the .iso of ANY distro on it, even Microsoft ones.

For multiboot, it is just a matter of scripting in Grub config files.
Not so easy, but the example of the easy2boot script can help.

It is documented in Grub, and is really independant of the version.
