Many people who use a Linux Operating System believe that it is by definition a secure system and that they are in no danger. I was once told that Linux is like a room with all the doors and windows closed and locked.

The truth is probably some where in between.
The document below provides minimal instructions to create a bootable thumb drive using MultiSystem that will allow you to boot to .iso images on the same drive. MultiSystem is open source software that gives you an easy and convenient way to carry around multiple installation .iso files. It's great for Install Fests or to use as a means to run a Live LINUX instance of any version you may need.
