Is there a tool on Ubuntu Lucid which can dump the GPT (GUID partition table) of a block device in a human-readable form? The most important information I'm interested in is the byte offset of each partition.

parted should be able to print the table, and will give you starting and ending of each partition, but I'm not sure that GPT uses byte offsets. gdisk gives its offsets in sectors, you'd multiply sectors by Logical Sector Size to figure out # of bytes.
