    You can boot the USB\DVD with grub4dos, put your isos in boot\ISO\youriso.iso , and then add this to menu.lst. You will have the ability to boot an iso.

    Code:
    #iftitle [if exist /boot/ISO]     Boot any ISO in directory ISO\n  This will list ISOs in the directory ISO and allow you to boot them
    title Boot any ISO in directory ISO\n  This will list ISOs in the directory ISO and allow you to boot them
    ls /boot/ISO/
    set /p MYISO=Which ISO do you want to boot? 
    ls /boot/ISO/%MYISO% || echo ISO %MYISO% NOT FOUND! && configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst
    map /boot/ISO/%MYISO%.iso (0xff)
    map --hook
    chainloader (0xff)
    boot

    Check out the Easy2Boot V1 project at rmprepusb website.
    Boot any iso (windows xp -> Windows Server 2012 Install ISOs, any linux iso, any floppy image, etc.) just by adding it to your Multiboot USB flash drive!

    I tried that out a few months ago, was hit and miss. Have you had success with it? I'll have to revisit it.
