And to be extra sneaky you can do:-

(defun list-buffers (&optional files-only)
  "Display a list of names of existing buffers.
The list is displayed in a buffer named `*Buffer List*'.
Note that buffers with names starting with spaces are omitted.
Non-null optional arg FILES-ONLY means mention only file buffers.

The M column contains a * for buffers that are modified.
The R column contains a % for buffers that are read-only."
  (interactive "P")
  (display-buffer (list-buffers-noselect (not files-only))))

Which reverse the meanings, so C-x C-b shows only file buffers and C-u
C-x C-b shows all.

There are several buffer listing systems in Emacs you can choose
according to taste standard list-buffers, bs-show and iswitchb.  You
could do this using iswitchb as B.T.Raven points out.  Also the bs-
show system automatically only lists buffers associated with files.
