Tutorial on how to use the Ubuntu Manual Drive Partitioner (Something Else option on Ubuntu 11.04) provided in the Ubuntu system Installer.
In this video I explain about drive partitioning and give an example of deleting an old Linux install, resize Windows partition, and explain what the other partitions on your harddrive might be.

8:35 How to use GParted

The Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) tend to leave a boot partition and a Windows recovery partition.

FAT32 tends to be a small bootup partition
NTFS is used for Windows and Windows backups

I recommend using Ext4 for Ubuntu
You'll also need a Linux Swap partition, which should be at least 1Gb, but its worth allocating more if you have enough harddrive space available.
