There was an article in a recent issue of Linux Format about "udev rules"
IIRC. I think you can give devices their own labels and so on.
It can be done, by specifying your own rules - unfortunately I don't know
But, in summary, yes I believe it is possible. Perhaps someone more
knowledgeable can point you in the right direction... Or as a start maybe
google for " udev rules " ?
For instance, "udev rules linux" returned this howto:
Linux User #343161
