"Parted Magic is a compact and lightweight distribution
of Linux to help you manage your disk. It is a live distribution
that can run off a CD/DVD or a USB drive. It comes packed with
several useful disk and partition management tools such as GParted
and Clonezilla. Unlike a number of live distributions of Linux out
there, Parted Magic has a pretty specialised approach to things.
"Take a break from the dozens of Ubuntu-Linux-based Linux
distributions. Parted Magic is a live CD distribution of Linux
based on Slackware. It specialises in helping users to manage the
partitions on their computer.
"Parted Magic is currently at version 5.6 and ships with
partitioning tools such as GParted, Clonezilla, Partimage,
TestDisk, Truecrypt, G4L, SuperGrubDisk and so on. This
distribution of Linux boots from the PXE and USB as well as CDs and
DVDs. Parted Magic is quite compact, and currently comes in a 130MB
download from here. The version reviewed is version 5.5."
