multiple distro's on usb

I have a usb with multiple distros on it. The entire usb has two partitions - both fat32, one for the data and another one for the live distros.
I then installed multisystem on my laptop (Ubuntu14.04) :-
          Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list file:-
       deb all main
         and update the repositories :-
      sudo apt-get update && apt-get install multisystem
Now fireup the multisystem and insert the formatted usb. Remember to be a non root user. Select your usb drive partition which should store the distros. Now choose the .iso image you wish to have on the usb and multisystem does the rest. You can have multiple distros and may even have persistence working for any one of them.
