Forgive my ignorance, but I just had to de-lurk to ask this probably silly 
Can't you have multiple kernel images on the same cd, chosen via lilo (or 
whatever boot loader is being used) just like when you have mulitple kernel 
versions on you computer?

I like the simple approach of "if you have a udma66 hd controller, boot off 
of cd #4", but it seems you could have a whole slew of kernels to choose from 
on the last cd, which is likely to have plenty of space free for such things.

Did you know that if you play a Windows 2000 cd backwards, you 
will hear the voice of Satan?

That's nothing!  If you play it forward, it'll install Windows 2000.
