File Dialog Woes

I recently re-installed Windows XP. Whenever I open a file dialog, the folder currently selected shows in Thumbnail mode. I want it in List mode and I can't figure out how to switch it.

Bulk-renaming Folders

Is there a way to bulk rename a bunch of folders in Windows XP by just removing any white space? I want to upload these to a web server and would prefer avoiding the %20 madness.

Can I rename my new partition?

I have a new 160 gig HD that I partitioned into two drives. One of the partitions is exclusively for mp3s. Unfortunately, when I open the drive, XP treats it as a "My Pictures" folder. How do I change it to a "My Music" folder? Ordinarily, I'd go Properties>Customize, but when I go Properties on the root folder, I get hard drive properties. (General / Tools / Hardware / etc.)
