I use a 1GB SanDisk Cruzer across both Windoze and Linux environments
without issue. Works under Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS and DSL; Win2K, XP and
Vista. Granted, there's some extra junk in there that Linux doesn't
really need (I'm not sure U3 is really needed anywhere...), but I
haven't noticed any problems...
