Why not put the commands into a text file locally?
Try _that_ with a GUI. :-)

I'm almost sure KDE or Gnome offer means to initialize mass
storage, but because those seem to be quite Linux-centric,
it's possible FreeBSD's system tools won't be utilized. So
with using the commands provided by Warren, you will be fine
every time. If you practice them regularly, you will remember
them, and if you do so, you'll surely write a script that
allows you to automate the task so you can forget the commands
again. :-)
