Default Booting from thumb drive?

I need to remove a partition from a HD and the computer has no CD drives. So how can I use a USB thumb drive to boot into some type of partitioning tool? And what type of tool should I use?

Use the USB utility from HP (its free) to make a bootable area on the USB thumb drive an then use gparted (its free to an GNU compliant)
