Hi Guys,

This is my first post. I am so confused after reading so many articles on web on how to do what is the subject of this post. May be I am looking for an easy way out.

I have 16GB SanDisk Cruser USB flash drive. All I want, which is good enough for me, is boot the following systems from a boot menu and use rest of the free space for data which is accessible from all systems below:
1. Ubuntu
2. Windows XP
3. UBCD
4. Backtrack
5. Ophrack

Guys - please help.

I am really stuck....

And maybe you won't find it here. ;)

Heck, you don't expect that exists a pre-made "monolithic" Tutorial or guide which covers EXACTLY the 5 Systems you want, do you? ;)

Quick course of action:
Get grub4dos 0.4.4 from here:
http://nufans.net/grub4dos/

Partition/Format the stick with any of the apps listed here:
http://www.msfn.org/...o...87993&st=17

If you choose one that does NOT install grub4dos for you, use this:
http://grub4dostoolb...ourceforge.net/
http://sourceforge.n...rub4dostoolbox/
to install it

Verify that the stick boots.

Then go here:
http://www.boot-land...hp?showforum=66

Read the Guide:
http://www.boot-land...?showtopic=5187

Check THIS sticky (and the working setups listed in it):
http://www.boot-land...?showtopic=5041

Browse/search the Forum for the various OS that you want to add.

Ubuntu, UBCD are definitely listed.
Backtrack should.
Ophcrack may.

XP is an ALLTOGETHER different thing, you'll need some time and patience for it, start reading from here:
http://www.boot-land...?...c=4857&st=0
and links within the thread

If you have specific problems, just post specific questions.
