I am one of those people who thinks of weird things. when I was browsing the web I saw that both windows XP and Windows 7 have the ability to be installed from a USB flash drive instead of a CD\DVD. now what I'm wondering is is it possible to have both windows XP and widows 7 installation files on the same drive and when you boot from the drive the bios would bring up a dual boot option menu and you choose what to install. I would think this is possible but I'm not one to know for sure. any ideas?

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W
Graphics Card = GTX 580 2-way SLI

Would you be interested in multi-booting several versions of Linux on 16gb flash drive /usb stick? If so here's a good guide http://www.pendrivelinux.com/boot-multiple-iso-from-usb-multiboot-usb/
