you know both Gparted and DNS Live CDs are less than 100 MB ,I dont want to carry 2 CDs everywhere... I wish I could have both of them on One CD and enjoy them..

do you know any way to do that ?

While I haven't looked at the structure of the two different ISO's, it is very feasable to have both. The thing to dow would be to download both .ISO files, and mount them with -o loop (save's burning a cd). The two should be able to be combined from there, as I believe they use compressed images on the cds. The trick into making them work is to combine both of the isolinux.cfg files into a common menu. This should allow you to boot either kernel/initrd combination, and the respective initrd files should take over from there.
