The "mount -l" command gives you all the info you want, not in nice format.
The next command is just one way of doing it:

> mount -l | grep dev | egrep -v 'tmpfs|pts' | awk '{print $1"\t" $3"\t" $5"\t" $6"\t" $7}'

the output gives you the device name, mount point, fs type, mount
options and filesystem label if it exists.

To label a partition use "e2label /dev/sdaX myLabel".
The e2label man page has more info.
