I'm a new ubuntu user (loving it), but I have a little problem right now.
I have a USB Pen that needs formatting.
What's the best GUI driven USB formater for Linux?
Thanx in advance

I'm a big fan of Gparted, which has been in the repositories for as long as I can remember. You can run it from the Administration menu after you install with this command:
sudo apt-get install gparted
If you're dealing with larger media, Gparted does take a while to scan all discs. To go around this, start up a terminal and type in:
gksudo gparted /dev/sdx
where sdx is the pendrive you want to format. This will have gparted scan only the disc you want to format, and speeds it up quite a bit. gksudo works better than sudo when launcher graphical applications.
