qstn using cfdisk

hey - im dual-booting win32 and debian woody.
when i get to 'partition hd" in the install menu, and cfdisk is shown, how do i name/label the parition?
i didnt see any option to name the partitions in cfdisk. while the windows partitions are labelled, i couldnt see how i could do the same on the new partitions using cfdisk.

thanks in advance.

(i had posted this on the debian distro list - but not many ppl there, and i was hopin for a quick reply, so forgive my double post)

cfdisk just uses the standard device names for partitions - typically you never change these - Linux refers to them in a standard way.
