YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) 2011-2012 Lance http://www.

Background of YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer):
YUMI is an easy to use installer script created using NSIS. YUMI's purpose is to
help automate the creation of a bootable USB Flash Drive that can be used to bo
ot multiple Linux based distributions (one at a time).
The end result should be a bootable USB Flash drive that will get you up and run
ning with your chosen Live Distributions, all without having to do the research
and perform the steps by hand.
My work consists of creating/maintaining the YUMI scripts, initial creation and
continued maintenance of the menu entries, adding suggested entries, and testing
to make sure the distributions boot.
How YUMI Works:
YUMI utilizes a Syslinux MBR to make the chosen drive bootable. Distributions ar
e extracted using 7zip to the multiboot folder on the USB device, and a custom s
yslinux.cfg file along with distro independant configuration files are used to b
oot each distribution. Grub4DOS grub.exe may also be used to boot ISO files dire
