Not to a hard drive, but if you're looking for something like Windows'
"volume label" a la the Format Disk program, you want to put a label
on a _filesystem_, not a hard drive.

The method for doing so depends on the filesystem.  For example, for
an ext2 or ext3 filesystem, `tune2fs -L <label> <device>` will get you
