Post subject:  LiveCDs SliTaz and SystemRescueCd onto UBCD 5.1.1 ??

(note to self: CONTINUE to copy all editable material to a simple editable textfile before posting-ability times out!)

Am attempting to install slitaz and SystemRescueCd liveCDs onto a USB drive already booting from UBCD 5.1.1 .
These Linux liveCD distros are SliTaz version 4.0 and SystemRescueCd version 2.7.0, and they are found online at http://www.slitaz.org/ and at http://www.sysresccd.org/SystemRescueCd_Homepage respectively. The UBCD-booting USB drive already has the latest pmagic (Parted Magic 2012_5_14 ; http://partedmagic.com/doku.php) and puppy (Slacko Puppy 5.3.3 ; http://www.puppylinux.com/download/index.html). UBCD wiki instructions for putting the latter two onto UBCD 5.1.1 are at http://wiki.ultimatebootcd.com/index.php?title=Tutorials and at http://wiki.ultimatebootcd.com/index.php?title=Tutorials:Integrating_Puppy_Linux respectively.

As per UBCD's customization instructions, have already extracted the SliTaz and SystemRescueCd iso's and copied the extracted liveCD contents to c:\ubcd-extracted\ubcd\custom\slitaz\ and to c:\ubcd-extracted\ubcd\custom\rescuecd\ respectively.

:?: Any good suggestions or pointers to get UBCD 5.1.1 to properly boot up SliTaz and SystemRescueCd :?:

Thanks :)

** Do ALL of Spalmore's suggestions for UBCD 4.1.1 and SystemRescueCd x86 1.2.2 at http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=198 still entirely apply for UBCD 5.1.1 and SystemRescueCd x86 2.7.0 :?: :?: :)

FWIW, It turns out that Spalmore's suggestions at http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=198 still entirely apply for UBCD 5.1.1 and SystemRescueCd x86 2.7.0
IMHO, a bit disorganized by dumping some of the major rescuecd folders and files in the "root" folder (c:\ubcd-extracted\) instead of all together in an isolated rescuecd\ folder within c:\ubcd-extracted\ubcd\custom\ :(
Still, spalmore's suggestions do work to successfully boot SystemRescueCd 2.7.0 in UBCD 5.1.1 :)

Jury still out though on also including SliTaz 4.0.

Sometimes the folder location is hard coded and will only work if they are put in the same location as on the CD/DVD or at the root of the drive.
