Before installing systems onto a PC, I draw out a map of the hard disks, 
and decide what partitions to set up and what will go where.

For example, I might decide to put Ubuntu Studio in sda1, Mint in sda5, 
home in sda6, swap in another partition, etc. It also helps to make each 
partition a different size.

Once something is installed, I use gparted to label each partition so I 
know what's what.

If you install something without remembering what is what, then mount 
everything, examine the contents, and then label each partition in gparted.
