Re: boot a live image from an ipod?

Also curious if it is possible to have multiple live images on a flash device and boot different ones? If so , how would that be done?

Currently the livecd-tools generated initramfs is not smart enough to deal with distinguishing multiple live images. A while back I submitted several livecd filesystem layout changes. The ones that would have begun to facilite distinguishable images haven't been merged yet. And there is certainly room for discussion on alternate approaches.

But either way it's just a matter of bash scripting...

(Though actually I just looked again. What I mentioned above was about the issues of storing multiple images on a single partition. It may actually be much easier to already accomplish this with multiple partitions. Still nothing that works out of the box, but perhaps doable already without changes to the initramfs)
