    Boot Partition

    Im in the area where you specify your target root partition and format it, and it tells me that I have two partitions marked as linux (82) which is what I wanted. When I go to format my boot partition as ext2 filesystem it wants me to specify a mount point. Where should I mount it?

    Plain and simple . Your mount point is the place where the partition will be mounted in Linux' folder structure. Mind that swap has no mount point! It is just formatted as Linux swap.

    You are going to want to change that 82 to an 83.
    82 is swap, 83 is linux.
