You can use the hal-find-by-property command, like this:

  hal-find-by-property --key volume.uuid --string 'DEB0-0001'
  hal-find-by-property --key volume.label --string 'Debian Inst'

(These two examples are for a usb stick that has the Debian installer on
 a partition with the fslabel "Debian Inst" and the UUID "DEB0-0001")
