 Is there a graphical disk usage tool available?
I'm looking for something that would present a good "visual" of what files are on my hard drives and hopefully allow me to go to them.
 A good example of would be "Kdirstat".
You can see what i am talking about here.

It's been around for a while.
I used its companion tool "Windirstat" on Win 7 and it still worked great.
Anyone know if this would still work on Pardus, or if there is something compatible to it?

I use Krusader, but if you don't like it, you can try filelight, available in pardus repository as well.

Thanks for your responses.
I took another look at Filelight and may be able to get this to work.
The first time I looked at it I thought it was pretty useless under its default settings.
A second closer look reveals much more potential.
I liked the "folder" type view of Kdirstat (Windirstat) though, which makes it super easy to find files and their sizes.
I'm a "visual" type person and need good graphic presentations.
Having to hover over to search is like looking for a needle in a haystack. I don't see a way to make Filelight show a folder view.
Also, I took a closer look at Krusader and will definetly find uses for this prog. The Kompare feature is very nice and will be useful in the future.
Thanks again for your help.
I am determined to get used to Linux and I'm loving Pardus!
Great to see how so many things work right out of the box.

 Grin JOY Grin JOY Grin JOY!!!!
 You guys are the greatest!
I love this program! I am soooo visual and can get so much more accomplished with this program than I can with the "hunt-n-peck" I have to do with the others.
I think this is a great addition to my Pardus install!
At first I thought it was something totally different until I got it set up.
Can't tell how much I appreciate your work!

THANKS!
