Hard drive tool

I am using Ubuntu 9.04 and am looking for a tool that will display the contents of my hard drive so I can quickly see what files are taking up the most space. Any suggestions?

This is what I am using for Mac OS X and am looking for something similar for Ubuntu. I find this tool invaluable.

Any other system tools that I would find useful, please let me know.

Konqueror has this, or you could try Baobab or KDirStat
