I know this is rather a late reply, but I'm hoping that someone is still watching this thread!

I remember that on my Amiga 1200, I could set the device name of hard drive partitions in HDToolBox. A little hunting around the web revealed this article:

... about the ADF format. They also discuss the Amiga RDB ('Rigid Disk Block'). It turns out that hard drive device names are set in the partition structure, pointed to by the RDB 'PartitionList' field. 'DriveName' is the name of the device.
