smallest live cd to support ext4?


So, i have a bunch of files i need on a ata hardrive from a dead computer. What is the smallest livecd i can download that will recognize the ext4 filesystem? I just need it to be able to boot to a shell, mount the drives and copy between them. I was going to try dsl as it's only 50mb, but i guess it's dead now and uses a 2.4 kernel w no ext4.
