According to MSDN, "FAT" and "NTFS" are both legitimate return values
for the filesystem name from GetVolumeInformation (though it does not
mention what other possibilities might also be valid). Wine hardcodes
this to always return FAT (or CDROM).
Since it is hardcoded, I don't know how you would "set up new drive
letters for the specific file systems you needed." An option in
~/.wine/config, on the otherhand, would make this easy.
