To your last 2 items from the list, I've used the bootscriptor code to
generate such a chain loader back in 2002. Unfortunately I put it on CD and
I'm not sure if it would work with pxeboot, but this is still an idea. I
think it would work
I then put there memtest, ghost, windows recovery etc. etc. I could share
the configuration file, but not the image as partition magick and ghost are
I've seen also a more recent multiboot project but don't know how good it
is, but it sounds promissing
