Hi all,

My primary computer has two hard-drives, divided into 16 partitions plus swap. Well, I used to run Xp, occasionally pcLinux, and tried out a couple versions of Mint, and created three for either debian or Arch which I never got around to installing ---and I guess I got carried away, especially as all my puppies are on one partition which is all I actually use except for a rare return to xp for Dragon Naturally Speaking or preparation of taxes. All of which leads up to the following: The data files I create while running Puppies are scattered among five of those partitions. I know where they are as I've organized them. Someone else trying to find a file would probably go nuts. I know that when a partition is created with gparted you can give that partition a label.
Wouldn't it be nice, especially for newbies, if those labels showed up on the desktop partition icons rather than the ambiguous "sda1....sdb9"?

I think the following thread has the info you need, but you will need to get your hands dirty, open up a few files, edit them and save.. I had it working, it works weel, but I lost my changes somehow.. Sad

Basically, there's a few files you need to modify, to change how drive icons are built, when drives are detected..

Anyway, here's the thread:

Akita Linux, VLC-GTK, Pup Search, Pup File Search
