In max you make a Torus Primitive, check on "generate mapping coordinates

If you forget, you can also use quick peel and then use straighten selection to square everything off again, very quick and easy (max2012).
Its a little more manual in <2011 you have to click a vertical edge, click loop, click ring, click flatten and then do the same for horiz.
