Ok, I installed gparted and it's not exactly what I'm looking for. I remember 
back in kde 3.x the partition manager in the control center would allow us to 
specify if users can mount/unmount the device, etc etc.

If it's QTparted as David suggested, and it's not in the repos as Mark 
suggested,(which I can't seem to find it either) I'm gonna be bummed.

It was a good tool, fast and easy to use for quick edits without having to 
remember how to edit fstab by hand.
