Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


multicd.sh is a shell script designed to build a multiboot CD / DVD image containing many different Linux distributions and/or utilities. You can use it for instance to burn Gparted Live, Clonezilla and Ubuntu, all on the same multiboot DVD. When booting the CD / DVD, you will be able to choose which Linux distribution you want to boot on.

The latest version of MultiCD was released two days ago and it adds Endian Firewall and CDlinux, fixes a bug that made it so Ubuntu was nameless on the menu, and makes Slax changes default. The .tar.gz version also comes with SYSLINUX so you don't have to download it every time.

Using MultiCD is very easy: simply download the script (please note that starting with version 5.x, you can download MultiCD in two formats: single script called "combined" and a script with a plugins folder called "separate"), put in a folder along with the supported ISO images (or symbolic links) and then make it executable and run it:
chmod +x multicd*.sh
sudo ./multicd*.sh

Make sure your ISO files are among the supported distributions listed HERE.
