This will require you to know how batch files work!!!!

The idea when I manage to do this is to create a new autoecex.bat and config.sys which wil go to each folder win98,winme,winxp and run the apropriate program for the setup...in the first 2 it neeeds to run setup.exe while for winxp or win2000 we have to go to i36folder and run winnt.exe....If that works we have a boot disk for the 3 os setup and all we have to do is burn it to a cd with nero,cdrwin or ecdc...
Any help is greatly appreciated

get a bootable winme cd.
use the boot extractor from the bart's site (www.nu2.nu) called bbie. rename the file created image1.bin to WME.IMG
extract the AUTOEXEC.BAT and edit the path FINDCD.EXE uses searching the file. the FINDCD.EXE searches the available cdrom's for the specified file and returns the drive letter containing it and stotes it in the cdrom variable. u can also use the FINDCD.COM from the bart's site, but the code for search and assinging of the cdrom driver letter should be changed to the one shown on the bart's site example. also change the path which the CD command uses to switch to the installation directory.
save the modified AUTOEXEC.BAT to the wme.img and then rename the extension back to .BIN/.DAT and call it from the DISKEMU.CMD file.
if the mentioned stuff is to complex for your, reply back and i'll email u the modified file.

Simply run WINNT.EXE from within DOS, and you're all set. Make your own ANSWER file, and you can walk away ( winnt.exe /u:d:answerfile.txt) while it installs.
Its nice that MS still allows you to begin these installs from within DOS.

Step1. Build the XP image just like my site lists.
Step2. Go to the ME/9X page and follow the same instructions.
Step3. Go to the unattend section if you want and automate the whole thing.
Step4. Edit diskemu.cmd, run cdimage and burn.
Yeah, yeah over simplified but that is all you need.
I have an XP, 98 and 95 CD that I already made. Was not able to include much else though on that CD. Some updates I think using RestoreCD.

.....After you got 8 CDs....copy each CD into your hard disk first and Create Sub-folder for each of them then copy them into there own folder.
Use CD Menu-Creator 2002 Make your CD name it whatever you want.....target to link for each one have to link to SETUP.exe and make menu....(remember donot move your your sub-folder of 8 Windows to difference Drive.....just leave them where they were and open ECDC 5.1 platinum (this support for DVD-R) then ofcourse want to burn DVD-data.....copy 8 (windows) and the Menu contents all file into ECDC5.1 then burn them (whatever name of the you like) for example : 8inOne-WIN after burn sucessful close everthing and eject your DVD-R....put it back into your DVD-ROM and try to click on the button that your created from the MENU....and now you should have a perfect multi-Operating Systems 8inONE...
Remember: "this is very hard and very techinical, try it from your DVD-RW first and following each step, you can't miss even a little step otherwise you have to start everything over and wasting your time"
