Gparted is by far the easiest program for that, I highly recommend it!

I have used Partition Magic with great success but it is a commercial program. Gparted looks like a great open source program. I am certainly going to add it to my live CD.

Gparted is hands down the best Freely available partition manger to resize ,create partitions. Have several live .iso images of similar tools on a flash stick to select and there is a post in HH on how to edit a flash key to not only put one of these tools on a flash drive but several if so desired ..

**** Edit this post a bit later for the HH link with that info?>>>

Here it is !
XBoot Create your own custom Multi-Image bootable USB Drive

yep omega that Xbot utility is pretty much the kats for getting several commonly used bootable .iso 's on a single stick 

...works really great for Gparted mem test and UBD  etc yada -yada & other tool-kit stuff 

... apologize  about the 5 minute delay earlier locating the thread  link earlier    lol

was just the stuff to share  at the time when I had received this:

OK it's 2GB & plenty to have a portable tool kit in 'da pocket

Thanks  Dave & Marco ! Smile

That 2GB hard drive sure looks cool; makes me wish that mine would get here already...

Still hoping though.

I like the current version of Hiren's BootCD on a USB now that they just have free/open source stuff on it. Better than when it was all pirated software a few years back.

You can also just edit the grub config to boot different ISO right off the drive. Al least its possible with the current version of Grub.

Xboot was only mentioned to supplement the original OP in this thread, which may be easier to set up , unless a multi or dual boot system is already availble

*** yep digtialdd that's what so cool Cool about being a bit familiar with the options available with Grub & OpenSource along with freedom of choice to  do so.

Might be a good idea  to check this out too & and linked for easy convenience
