Something tells me you may not fit all 5 images on a single disk. I'd find out if they all fit first before going any further. If you have the images already made, just add them all up (their size on disk) and do the math.

You should be able to make the disk bootable and just include a menu allowing you to choose which image to install.

Research "bootable CD" or "bootable DVD" on google. If that doesn't work, google "el torito disk"

Normally it takes at least one DVDR to image just a Windows installation.

As was stated above, you aren't going to get multiple images on one disk.

The general rule of thumb is to expect a compression ratio of less than 2 to 1. Files such as MP3 & jpg are already in a compressed mode so not much more compression can be expected.

Look at the size of the files on the partition to determine the approximate size on disk after using Ghost.
