#4 Boot file wrong?

Hello,

I would like to create a multiboot CD with Austrumi
1.1.0 and Damn Small Linux 2.3 using EasyBoot.
Therefore I have copied all files to one directory and
extracted the boot file from each CD using UltraISO.
The bootloader from DSL is located in /boot/isolinux
and the files are in /KNOPPIX. Austrumi has the
bootloader in /isolinux and the image file /boot. So
there shouldn't be any problems with a dual boot.
But if I run the boot file from Austrumi from within
EasyBoot it launches DSL and not Austrumi. If I remove
the /boot/isolinux directory from the CD Austrumi
starts, but DSL doesn't work any longer due to the
missing files.
I looked at the boot file from Austrumi and found a
string "/boot/isolinux". That's probably the reason why
DSL boots if I select Austrumi.
Could you perhaps fix this if possible?

Many thanks in advance!

    You could joins us at Austrumi forum for english version at
    http://austrumi.mypunbb.com

    I am the only one active there since inception, but
    Austrumi has certtain strong points to bring a forum to
    help its popularity.

    But, dual booting livecds on one cdrom is interesting
    project. We know you are sort of stuck at the way
    directories of each distro limits the bootloader. Perhaps
    boot1 and boot2 would be more ideal than just one boot
    directory.
