I use the BeOS DriveSetup app (under preferences) for that - when you 
"initialise" the partition to BFS it will ask you for a volume name and 
automatically mount it.

I don't think the Haiku installer is finished, I certainly would recommend 
using it. Instead mount the Haiku image under BeOS with Axel's Mount Image - 

Ok, I was trying this way but ImageMounter says that haiku.image is
not a valid image file, and mountimage just crashes... :-(
