This is a "nuisance level" issue. When using the gnome file browser and I go into a directory that is a mount, the file browser shows the volume name of that mount. I don't want to know that the system considers the mount to be "183.4 GB Volume". I want the system to know that "I" consider it to be "/data". Any way I can accomplish this?
I've re-named such items by just moving, for instance: 'mv /mnt/1843.4GB Volume /mnt/data. Then change this part in fstab also, the device will still be the same. Or mv /mnt/1843.4GB Volume /data if you don't want it under /mnt.

Hi Junior Hacker,
I didn't see your response till now for some reason. I don't quite understand what you're saying. I have the drive mounted as "/data". There is nothing in "/mnt". It's not a removable media device, and I have the following in /etc/fstab.
tune2fs is designed for ext2/ext3 filesystems, and didn't work on my USB flash drive using DOS f/s. Even dosfslabel didn't give me what I wanted. I ended up reformatting it mkfs.msdos -n MYNAME /dev/sdb1 and now it automounts with the right partition name.
