Very small and simple usb bootable distro?
I only need it to be capable of performing the secure erase features on recent ATA hard drives.... ie
hdparm -I /dev/X
hdparm --user-master u --security-set-pass Eins /dev/X
time hdparm --user-master u --security-erase Eins /dev/X
I have been using Ubuntu in the past but it's a bit overkill for these three commands!
Does anyone have any suggestions?

There's one called Finnix that might fit the bill.
