    No, the partition still has a UUID. Kubuntu uses the UUID for the mount point if it doesn't have a label. UUIDs are generated at partition creation, IIRC.
    None but ourselves can free our minds

Thanks for the tip on the options...I wasn't sure what to put in there so I went by the example in the tutorial...defaults is all I need unless I want something special.
    There is no randomness. udisks will mount to /media/LABEL if the partition has a label. It will mount to /media/UUID if there is no partition label.

    You can circumvent this by creating a entry in fstab enabling you to mount it wherever you please.

    Glad you got all the info you needed! The forums are a great community, and one of the things I find most impressive and appealing about Ubuntu and it's derivatives.

    Oh, and remember to mark your threads "solved" once the initial problem is answered to your satisfaction!

    Just one nitpick:

    Right. The randomness I'm referring to is the system-generated UUID, itself. I know it stays the same once it's initially generated, but it generates a random UUID at that point. Gparted had an option to change to a new system-generated UUID. Considering that my partition is now labeled, I don't have to worry about that. Marking solved now.
