Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This is probably an extreme n00b question, and one that probably isn't distro-specific, but I'm flailing here and would like some guidance.
I am running Kubuntu 9.10.
I am trying to format my USB flash drive/geek stick. It mounts as /media/TOSHIBA/. What I don't know is how to determine which device it is when attempting to do the fdisk -l command. I can't just "guess around" as I've got a 1TB USB drive attached as well. Accidentally formatting that would be, um, less-than-desirable. I could unplug the TB drive and thrash about in my ignorance, but that doesn't really advance my knowledge at all. And I have this NEED to know.
I'm sure there's a simple, basic, CLI command or GUI tool (not real picky at the moment) that I can use, but I'm just not finding it.
