I think the title says it all, I am interested in installing Centos 5.5 Live and Ubuntu 10.4 / 10.10 and possibly other Linux distros.

So the question is how... I have looked at UNetbootin but do not see an option to add more distros.

Thanks

Treat the USB the same as a hard drive. Partition it, and install each flavor on a different partition. The first installation creates the boot loader and each successive installation you will select to install the boot files in the original boot

Lifehacker recommends PenDriveLinux to help with this.

I couldn't find a similar application that runs in Nix but Fedora has a tutorial on how to accomplish this task.
