Default Chameleon idea - Multi-OS installer USB drive - 11-17-2009, 04:19 AM

I know that Chameleon has it's own forum, but figured I would take a chance and ask here in the meantime. What I have in mind might not even be possible but...

The idea

Being able to use Chameleon on a big enough flash drive (16gb or more) with multiple partitons, to have a partition with Chameleon on it, then a partition where you have restored the OSX install dvd to a paritition just like we already do, then a parition for Windows 7 DVD. It would be fantastic is we could also have partitions with XP and Linux setups as well. Once you have the partitions setup correctly and the installers put in the partitions to use Chameleon as the bootloader to select the OS to install.

Does anyone know if this is even possible currently?

Nice, I was interested in something quiet similar. My idea was in Partitioning say 5 sections & have Chameleon let choose btwn say OSX Leopard, OSX SL, Win7, Vista & Win XP. Or even Linux. Could something like this be done. I could guess that its possible, you could use like a 620GB HDD or something. I would love to try if I could get input on trying something like this.
