Parted Magic can be used to create, move, delete and resize partitions on a machine that has only 64 Mbytes of memory. It Supports a lot of file systems including NTFS, FAT, ReiserFS, Reiser4 and HFS +, and of course Btrfs, ext2, ext3 or ext4.

This latest version is based on the Linux kernel 2.6.36 and features the addition of the SciTE SCIntilla-based text editor. According to Parted Magic developer Patrick Verner, version 5.8 marks the first time that the ISO image can be booted completely from RAM. Parted Magic is released under version 2 of the GNU General Public License (GPLv2).
