welcome to Ubuntu, the OS that thinks that is smarter than you (and it's usually right unless you're a genius) you can't rename file system because thats not a name but rather what it is. it IS a file system. your file system at that. now, the reason you cant modify things in / is because Ubuntu only allows you to do that through the terminal window using the sudo command and putting your password every 15 minutes.

You mean you don't have root permissions on your linux system correct? You may have to change the root password or set one up, I believe the command is "sudo passwd root" without the quotes of course...then just set whatever password you want. Also if you want write access on your windows drive and it's not permitted, you can get a program called ntfs-3g and it will enable you to have write access.
