Default Can a bootloader be placed on a DVD/CD to create partitions?

I am tired of burning a CD for a 30mb or even 100mb iso or disc image. I am curious if there is a way to take a number of disc images and install them all on one CD and have a boot loader choose which section of the CD/DVD to run?

You can do that with the UBCD4Win disc. It lets you build a boot menu, and boot to BartPe. I know there are others that are standalone, I just can't think of them right now...

BCDW is what most people use: http://bootcd.narod.ru/index_e.htm

This page tells you all about how to use it.

Try using CDShell (http://www.cdshell.org/) with BCDW, its not too hard to setup - I have a diagnostic business card CD with HDD diagnostics iso's which is pretty handy
