Ok, look at the size it shows for your hard disks. If the size matches the hard disk you want to install to (say e.g. your 80GB drive), then yes, use "resize xyz". This will shrink the partition with the currently installed system, make some free space for Ubuntu and will install itself there.

If you don't care about your old system you can erase everything by choosing the "use entire disk" option.

Wording from memory, by the way, may be vague.

Can you help with this problem?
