Will you be able to access those images after the El Torito bios has
done its stuff? As I understand it, the *bios* is supposed to give you
the selection, after which that image is mapped as a virtual drive A:
and normal system bios does its thing (i.e. check the A: drive to see if
it's bootable, and if so jump to the bootsector).

At least, my Buslogic bios says something about "mapped default image to
A:, original drive A: available as B:"...  However, this is just an
uninformed opinion.

Did you look at http://www1.yk.rim.or.jp/~gigo/bootcd/index_e.html ?
