    I saw this on DW as well.
    Just curious, does this have any more functionality than accessing gparted from another livecd?

    I don't know. I've got the .ISO downloaded but haven't burned it yet. I plan to do that today though...

    Well, I've tried it out and it works very well. She boots right up to gparted within Fluxbox after asking basic questions about keyboard, video card/drivers etc. I was alerted to the fact that it is Slackware based when the first question "box" came up. They look the same as when doing a Slackware installation or running pkgtool. The kernel version is 2.6.16. Gparted itself rivals Partition Magic in simplicity and intuitiveness. If you are forever creating, resizing and formating partitions as I am, you'll want a mini CD of Gparted in your toolbox to handle all the above.

    This will make a great tool that's very easy to use for those new to partitioning. I'll certainly be recommending it often. The small iso file size is a definite plus, and it's nice to see that it comes with aterm and leafpad built right into it.
