The iso image for a live cd release is about 35mb in size. But the small drive utility can pack a whollop since I regularly use that for partitioning and resizing partitions for XP, Vista, and when going to see a Linux distro added on.
Once you use it a few times you'll ask "why didn't I know about it before?". For working with MS partitions and being a first time user the 0.3.3.0 release is found at SourceForge.net: Files
For burning the iso image to a cd-r many use Deep Burner while I've been seeing reliable burns with the free version of BurnOn found at BurnOn CD & DVD - Free DVD Burning Software - Freeware CD burner Windows XP & Vista
