i just changed the name like i changed the name of anything else in OSX soo... yeah... as for changing the Icon,
Right click/control click ->get info -> you see the image of the icon int he upper left corner? select it so it glows ->Edit, ->Paste the icon you want to change it to.

You can change the name under XP. But changing the icon requires pretty much diving in to hidden system folders - something not even I want to do.

partition capitals

the only problem with fat is that it just let you rename the partition/volume using capital letters.

than if you're a freak like me :p and would like to rename it to something like "Win XP" and not "WIN XP" here's a hint:

- create aliases for the partitions on your desktop
- on "finder" preferences, under "general" tab, deselect the option to show hard disks on desktop
- rename the aliases the way you want...

i also disabled showing hard disks on my finder sidebar.
but i couldn't drag my beautifully named volume aliases there.
any suggestions? :confused:

If you installed using NTFS do you have to reinstall windoes to format FAT32? and after you do that will you be able to write to that system as well from mac for file transfers?
