Applications > Accessories > Terminal

And in KDE

In Kubuntu (KDE 3), it's in KMenu > System > Konsole

Use Synaptic to search for a tool called nautilus-open-terminal, something like that. There's also other tools that are useful, like nautilus-gksu, and nautilus-actions. After install just ctrl-alt-backspace and relogin. Your right-click options will be available.

i am getting options like this..

Create Folder..
Create Launcher..

..

Now i want to add a new option like

Open Terminal
Send To --> Pendrive

I explained the install instructions on my previous post... Use synaptic to install the packages that I listed... If you have a hard time with this then google for Ubuntu tweak and use that to add the menu options
