How to create a Multisystem LiveUSB flash drive from Linux: Multisystem is a neat little tool that works similar to the YUMI MultiBootISOs USB Boot Creator, but was created only specifically for use within Linux. It can be run from within Ubuntu to create a custom Multiboot UFD from the ISO files of your favorite bootable Live Linux distributions.

- Developer: LiveUSB
NOTE: MultiSystem might not work as expected, as the old LiveUSB project is no longer active. Use YUMI exFAT in Linux, instead!
