Multi-Boot USB Stick

I have created a bootable thumb drive from an ISO using a product from freeisotousb.com My next step is to figure out how to make it multi-bootable so that I can select from a menu and choose what to do.

Potential Uses:
1. It is current only in single-boot mode and is to used to install Windows.
2. I want to make it into a tech drive to contain a couple of live copies of Linux as well as OS installations.
3. It would also be nice to have a data folder on it as well, and some portable apps.  Assistance is greatly appreciated.

I want to keep it simple so if I can do this with a batch file and even without the use of freeisotousb, I would like to.

It sounds like GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader) is exactly what you want.

Have a look at YUMI, without any doubt my number one!
I have lot's of ISO's on my USB stick and all working fine...
The latest version of Yumi allows you to add/remove items without rebuilding the whole USB again.  
Creation is very straightforward and the booting is nice and easy.
From within Yumi you can also download ISO's directly...
