    Unhappy triple-booting on usb flashdrive


    Im trying to install Backtrack 4, XBMC live, and ultimate boot cd onto a 4gb usb flash drive and im wondering if my partition layout is acceptable for doing what i want to do, and im wondering how to install them to usb correctly (unetbootin doesnt work)


    partition layout

    100mb for boot
    2.5gb for backtrack 4
    700mb for UBCD
    700mb for XBMC live


    Which brings me to another question:
    how do i install grub, or another boot loader that will read the adjacent partitions and boot them no matter what pc im on?
