A live USB with more than one Linux distro? [SOLVED]
« on: March 29, 2017, 03:11:41 pm »
I occasionally try out a distro just for interest and always think how wasteful it is to reserve a whole 32GB USB drive just for one distro.  To try another Linux version I either have to wipe the old one or buy a new USB stick. 

I have read somewhere that it's possible to have several distros on the same "Live USB".  If it's easily possible, how can I do that? 

Your advice would be appreciated.

Not a pain at all - thank you for reminding me.
In fact I haven't tried it yet as the sun is out, and no doubt I shall have further questions.  But I have marked it as solved.

Thanks,
   Keith
