Whenever I format a flash drive I'm always terrified that I'm going to fat-finger something in the terminal and accidentally blow away a partition on one of my hard drives.  *shudder*

Is gparted the best gui to handle this task?  Or is there something better?  I'd really prefer something more limited that just allows me to select whatever it sees as a removable drive and disallows any screwin' about with the other drives. 

"Format the USB connected drive?". 
"Choose format (ext4, ext3, fat32)".
