I have a McAfee Recovery disk that can only be created using a bootable Floppy of all things. I have the floppy which works fine, but want to run this off of a USB stick for the rest of my team. I have created a Yumi Multi iso bootable USB and would like to add this iso to it. Even a CD would work for me!  Any help would be appreciated.

Add the floppy boot image to the UBCD. The UBCD site has enough documentation on how you can add your own images to it (many of the tools included on the CD are actually floppy images):

Whether you can add the UBCD to a Yumi multi iso boot USB I don't know, but I don't see any reason why that shouldn't work.

Thanks rindi
That all worked a treat, and yes it works Yumi multiboot USB.
All i need to do now is find out why my McAfee EETech Standalone disk only works as a CD Rom or a Floppy and not as a USB. I post another question for that.
