I currently have a Bootable CD which serves it's purpose but I'm looking to expand my horizons.

My CD currently allows me to boot into....

1. Bart's Corporate Modular Disk (Loads of DOS based utilities.)
2. MS Windows PE with a Manually adjustable ramdrive (Loads of Windows based Utilities.)
3. **** Small Linux
4. Acronis Tools (Partition, Imaging, Migrating, Cleansing..)
5. Memtest
6. ERD Commander 2003 with 32 MB Ramdrive.
7. Winternals Disk Commander
8. O&O Bluecon XXL
9. Tom's RtBt Linux
10. Tufftest

I have used Bart's Corporate Mod disk to create the final ISO of this compilation. I am interesting in using bootscriptor or Cdshell so I can create/extend my CD to a DVD which includes various OS setup options. I noticed a lot of tutorials on it already but what I wanted to get a opinion about was what would be a good/flexible yet customizable way to proceed.

CDshell, Bootscriptor or Cdimage (I don't know anything regarding these.)

Thanks for your time and any comments/suggestion will be helpful.

about the three you wrote:
* bootscriptor
* cdshell
* cdimage

First cdshell 2.0 is the new bootscriptor (final was 1.2).
* script-language for generating an menu for cds/dvds.

Second cdimage you use to build the images.
* can reduce your image-size (looks for "file-doubles" - oh, my bad english)

CDImage is the only image creation tool in the list.

Everything else is used to make the menu's of the disk.

EasyBoot is easy to use, no scripting.
CDShell and Bootscriptor or almost hte same thing, so whichever you like more.
