You shouldn't need to create a partition for Ubuntu, the installer does this
for you. You should instead leave a chunk of empty space on the target disk
for the installer to use.

Have you already installed Ubuntu? If so, have you done it through the Live CD installer?

Alan, I have a partition that contains Windows Vista and another partition
that contains XP. I don't want to lose either in the installation. There
are two choices, use the whole disk or manual. Which should I use?

Choose manual, then manually resize the Windows XP or Vista partition to free some space, then create an ext3 partition with mount point / .

Yes, that did the trick. Thanks so much.
