INSERT is a complete, bootable linux system. It comes with a graphical user interface running the fluxbox window manager while still being sufficiently small to fit on a credit card-sized CD-ROM.

Have you tried this tool?

It isn't updated since 2007, I wonder if they're still actively developing it? :huh:

The INSERT Linux had more utilities than many other small live-cds,
unfortunately, this project is no longer being maintained... :huh:

...but this distribution is still active in distrowatch ,

Look:

The Insert was a great swiss knife distro, small and with great tool. BUT:
it' no more maintened.. (kernel is old)
the partitioning and ghost imaging programs have been revamped
maybe we can ask to PArtedMAgic author to add some tools that are left aside from INSERT
