I found a way using cdshell and EasyBoot.
It involves hexing some files as usual.
The Method I will write soon...

There is hope.

I was able to put multiple Knoppix based Linux distributions
on one CD using:
EasyBoot
Ultraiso
CDshell
a Hex editor
Winimage
and cdimage.exe.

Make a menu using EasyBoot as usual.
one option for KNOPPIX 3.9 with this in the Command section "run knoppix.bin"
another option for DAMM SMALL LINUX with this in the Command section "run dslinux.bin"
for example

Create the Project Structure like this:

C:\disk1
-disk1 (project root)
   |-ezboot
       |-knoppix.bin (2k in size) KNOPPIX loader, loader.bin renamed taken from the cdshell download.
       |-dslinux.bin (2k in size) DAMM SMALL LINUX loader, loader.bin renamed taken from the cdshell download.
       |-(the other ezboot files)
   |-knp1
       |-modules (folder and all its contents, also include this file, BCDW.CSM)
       |-cdsh.bin (taken from the cdshell download.)
       |-cdshell.ini (taken from the cdshell download, details below.)
       |-knoppix.ima (the Knoppix boot image, details below)
   |-dsl1
       |-modules (folder and all its contents also include this file, BCDW.CSM)
       |-cdsh.bin (taken from the cdshell download.)
       |-cdshell.ini (taken from the cdshell download, details below.)
       |-dslinux.ima (the DAMM Small Linux boot image, details below)
   |-DSLINUX (full extract of the KNOPPIX folder from original iso and renamed)
   |-KNPX (full extract of the KNOPPIX folder from original iso and renamed)

Here are some details about the files that need to be modified.

The Loaders:
The loaders need to be Hex Edited.
(Note: To Hex Edit files you may use EasyBoot>Tools>Replace Textů)
The knoppix.bin (2k in size), replace the text boot with knp1
The dslinux.bin (2k in size), replace the text boot with dsl1

cdshell.ini:
The contents of the "cdshell.ini" inside the "knp1" folder is this:
Code Sample

bcdw boot \knp1\knoppix.ima

Get this empty image file

The contents of the "cdshell.ini" inside the "dsl1" folder is this:
Code Sample

bcdw boot \dsl1\dslinux.ima

Get this empty image file Here knoppix.rar

The image files
Now these image files need to be filled (using Winimage) with the files inside the "isolinux" folder of
the Knoppix based Linux, except:
isolinux.bin

The syslinux.cfg file:
The file "isolinux.cfg" needs to be renamed to "syslinux.cfg",
it also needs to be text edited to include this code:
knoppix_dir=KNPX in the KNOPPIX Linux "syslinux.cfg"
knoppix_dir=DSLINUX in the DAMM SMALL LINUX "syslinux.cfg"
at the end of each label in the "syslinux.cfg" file for each Linux.

for example in the KNOPPIX Linux "syslinux.cfg":
LABEL knoppix
KERNEL linux
APPEND ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off vga=791 initrd=minirt.gz nomce quiet BOOT_IMAGE=knoppix knoppix_dir=KNPX

After editing the file inject it into the boot image of the Linux it belongs to.

Build your iso with cdimage.exe with this batch code:
Code Sample

cdimage.exe -lMulti-Linux -bC:\disk1\ezboot\loader.bin -J1 -h -o -m C:\disk1 C:\Multi-Linux.iso


Let us know how it went.

breezy,

Make a menu using EasyBoot as usual.
one option for DAMM SMALL LINUX with this in the Command section "run dslinux.bin"

Create the Project Structure like this:

C:\disk1
-disk1 (project root)
   |-ezboot
       |-dslinux.bin (2k in size) DAMM SMALL LINUX loader, loader.bin renamed taken from the cdshell download.
       |-(the other ezboot files)
   |-boot
       |-modules (folder and all its contents, also include this file, BCDW.CSM)
            (taken from the cdshell download.)
       |-cdsh.bin (taken from the cdshell download.)
       |-cdshell.ini (taken from the cdshell download, details below.)
       |-dslinux.ima (the DAMM Small Linux boot image, details below)
   |-KNOPPIX (full extract of the KNOPPIX folder from original iso)
   |-(your other files and folders)
   

The Loader:
The dslinux.bin (2k in size) loader.bin renamed taken from the cdshell download.

cdshell.ini:
The contents of the "cdshell.ini" inside the "boot" folder is this:
Code Sample

bcdw boot \boot\dslinux.ima

Get this empty image file Here knoppix.rar
Extract the image from the archive and rename it to dslinux.ima

The image file
dslinux.ima
Now this image file needs to be filled (using Winimage) with the files inside the "isolinux" folder of
the DAMM SMALL LINUX iso, except:
isolinux.bin

The syslinux.cfg file:
The file "isolinux.cfg" needs to be renamed to "syslinux.cfg",
inject it into the boot image dslinux.ima or just rename it inside Winimage.

Build your iso with cdimage.exe with this batch code:
Code Sample

cdimage.exe -lMulti-Boot -bC:\disk1\ezboot\loader.bin -J1 -h -o -m C:\disk1 C:\Multi-Boot.iso

This works for me so I keep using it.

Let us know how it went.

(My original post slightly modified for your case)

Im home now and tried per your instructions. It goes to cdshell 2.1 and says "Boot failed: please change disks and press a key to continue." in Virtual PC.

Im using DSL 1.4 if that make any difference.

breeze,
Did u take the file isolinux.bin out of the dslinux.ima?
And did u include the file BCDW.CSM inside the \boot\modules\ folder?
Also check the text in the file cdshell.ini make sure it is as I said above.

That has to be done for this method to work.

later...
