    Well ... you need a root partition for the install to ... 'install' i suppose

    generally people do the following partition format

    /boot = 100M (to be safe)
    SWAP = double your ram (approx)
    / = root partition ... the rest of your drive

    / is equiv to c:/ in windows
    /boot is where the kernel lives
    swap is the same as in windows, a section of the drive the OS uses if RAM is used up.
