I've been experimenting with using UNetbootin as an installation device for installing various distributions of Linux. I'd like to have a single thumbdrive with several distros, ready to install on a new system. I had pretty good luck with OpenSuse 11.3, except for the fact that after booting and starting the installation, it forgets where the install media is. But even normal DVD installations often ask where the media is even though you just booted it to get the installer! Never could quite understand that.

Has anyone used UNetbootin for this purpose?
Also, after making my UNetbootin work with OpenSuse, and trying to additionally get CentOS 5 to work, UNetbootin forgot about OpenSuse 11.3. When booting, I select "linux" since it seems to be the only thing to select. I was hoping there would be menu items after the installation:
