Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Gnome volume manager checks if it can find an entry for the device in /etc/fstab. If it does, it will respect setting given there., including the name (of the mountpoint).
If you use USB memory sticks, it would be advisable to include entries for them in fstab also... I use options "sync,dirsync,noatime" to reduce amount of writes to the stick - thus increasing it's lifetime. By default gnome volume manager mounts filesystems without specific options. Check /etc/mtab to see with what options your harddisk is mounted.
Btw. if you add option "users" to your device in fstab, you will see icon on the gnome desktop whenever the device is mounted. Option "user" might work also, but with that option only the user who mounted the device (or root) will be able to unmount it.
