Sorry SirLagz, version 0.03 doesn't find my sd card reader either. I didn't let it format my main hard drive "back to normal" .
Its not easy plugging the reader in when the card is in the slot, Whilst it is a USB device (almost all card readers are) its internally connected to the motheroard's USB. Open heart surgery I'm not in the mood for.....
Ah one of those.
I'm trying to work out how I'm going to work around it so bear with me for now
Have you tried booting up PiParted with a SD card inserted ?

from wget or curl , too !
i guess the potential advantage of this is that it would work on systems with less (1.5<) ram , like the pi?
afak using curl & pipe & dd you are not able to Checksum the image ? as it is writen 'on the fly' ..
@SirLagz (lol gd name!) glad it was usefull also i now have enough ram to give it a try ( just no cdrom .. but think i can work round that )
The checksum is actually for the zipfile and not the image itself, so image verification still works.
You can also 'burn' the iso to a USB stick to use PiParted off a USB stick rather than CD.
UNetBootin works for that on linux
