Actually, I would guess that Jacob would find it easier to just add
volume labels to each partition.

For ext2 or ext3, use the e2label(8) command.

For vfat, I've generally resorted to WinXP.  Right click on the disk
icon, select properties, and type in a name in the box at the top.

See the part of my old message under the section "Changing the mount
point":
