Changing the label on a FAT partition?

This seems like a simple question, but I can't find a way to do it...
How do I change the volume label on a FAT partition? Now that SuSE 9.3 mounts usb devices and the like on /media/VOLUME_LABEL, I want to change some of my devices to sensible names, but can't see how to do this without loading them in Windows, or re-formatting them. e2fs has the "e2label" program - is there an equivalent for Linux?
