How can I add Ubuntu ISO to Boot?

I have Windows XP and Windows 7 dualboot. I'm using Windows 7 bootloader as default.

I tried to add ISOs of Windows and ATIH versions. They worked.

But Ubuntu and Kubuntu ISO's don't boot. They gave kernel panic error, I didn't note the error code. I want to use Ubuntu without install, from LiveCD. I searched google, but couldn't find a solution.

Is the problem about Ubuntu or about my computer configuration or Windows 7 bootloader?

I didn't try NeoGrub or other Linux distros.

What are your suggestions?

Most Linux install CDs are incompatible with the method used by EasyBCD to boot from an ISO image. You could extract the CD to a folder on your drive, and use NeoGrub to boot it though.
I installed neogrub. Could you please explain how the menu.lst has to look like? I extracted the content of Ubuntu CD to my USB Pen Device into folder ubuntu. What to do next? :
