> It would be more accurate to classify Clonezlla as an package (application)
 as it has been integrated as included application in the PartedMagic 4.4
 distribution and is available at Sourceforge using Ubuntu Karmic as the base
 distribution in the Clonezilla download area.
I have checked both sourceforge.net/projects/partedmagic and
artedmagic.com and neither mention Clonezilla.
If you check http://sourceforge.net/projects/clonezilla/files/
you will find the first download is clonezilla-live-20091230-karmic.zip
which is based on Ubuntu Karmic. It is 123 MB is size so it a stripped 
down Karmic Kola 9.10 but you could build it back up to a full desktop
distribution using apt-get if you are so inclined.
PartedMagic did include Clonezilla on the desktop in 4.4 but in 4.5
(I think) when to the dual boot because of Clonezilla templates.  If 
you do a Google search on PartedMagic +Clonezilla, you will see that
it is in there.  Clonezilla and PartedMagic are both liveCDs.

I was uncomfortable calling it a distribution; pseudo-distribution
ight be more accurate since, AFAIK (never used it),  it is basically
sed as a live cd, like parted magic, knoppix, sysrescuecd, etc.
