Dear John,
Pl download and burn it on CD then go for installation and when installation wizard starts it will again be asking you about which partition you want to use it for installation give the one you want then it has to be either ext3 or ext4... choose ext3 format then keep atleast 1 GB for swap memory also. There after installation is automatic you need to wait and should be completed in an hour or so after that run the updates through update=manager almost you may be downloading around 200-300 Mb of updates for your ubuntu 11.04.

Can you help with this problem?
