Trying to identify cactuses

I was trying to find a cactus related newsgroup but couldn't find any in the
list of groups my provider is offering. I hope bionet.plants is the right
place ;)
Anyway, I just got a number of cactuses and now I'm trying to identify them
in order to find some hints about the best care (light, water etc). They
came with a few labels, but when I looked those up on the web I found they
didn't really match.

The labels I have:
Mammillaria Albilanata
Mammillaria Brauneana
Ferocactus Peninsulae
Polaskia Chichipe
Astrophytum Ornatum

Others didn't come with labels.
Who could help a newbie in identifying those? I have listed images of them

Thanks in advance for any hint!
