Multiple Xp versions one bootable usb drive

I have got a SanDisk Cruzer usb memory stick and im trying to put a copy of Windows Xp 9 in 1 (A disk that is available of torrent sites that has oem, retail and corportae versions of xp pro and home).

Im having several problems with doing this:
1) if I use programs like Unetbootin it extracts the contents and it ends up to be over 4gb my usb stick is only 4gb.

2) If I use Yumi or FlashBoot the usb stick boots but when I get to a certain stage in the xp setup I get a BSOD

Does anybody have any suugestions on how to make this ISO bootable from a USB stick?

    3) XP is big. Your drive is not big enough to run XP.
