Update~So I still haven't gotten anything to boot from the USB using those programs. Rmeprepusb seemed promising, but I get errors no matter how I try to configure the settings. Perhaps I'm going about this the wrong way or it's just downright not in the cards for me. Sorry about the long delay between replies, just got the wifi turned back on.

If I was going to attempt this, I would use Ultraiso to modify the first disk in the set. Add the files from the second and third iso to the first. Save it all as a single DVD iso...Then convert that iso to the USB stick...

Don't know if it would work or not...

You may have to convert the first cd iso to a dvd iso first...I bet you will come to think of it..

Okay, well, here goes nothing. I'm extracting all the ISOs to create a new super one. Not getting my hopes up though. If I had been able to get even the first disk to load without immediately running into errors then I'd be more optimistic. Thanks for the advice. I'll check in again once I've got this all wrapped up. Grr, if only I had a burner!

What are the error messages you are getting when you try and boot from the USB stick?
You need to made the USB stick DOS bootable, then open the ISO in UltraISO, or a similar program, and copy the fils on the disc to the USB stick. I don't know if you can run all 3 images off the same stick. If you need info on making a UB stick bootable, I have an archive with the programs and info you need that I can upload to Dropbox for you.

Okay, so when using RMPrepUSB I get the following error:

H:/i386 folder is not present on the USB drive

When I try to boot it upon restart it just says ERROR!

Anybody try outright disk cloning from CD-to-USB? A sector copy would take care of all this boot sector and MBR business with all the files in one fell swoop.
