First of all, copy any data you want to keep in an other hard disk, usb stick, etc...
All data on the Windows partition will be deleted it once you convert it to Linux partition.
During installation, the program will ask you about partitions.
Personally, I make:
- 1 GB type swap
- 20GB type "ext3" mount point / (if your hdd is 80GB or less, i'd suggest 10GB)
- The rest type "ext3" mount point /home
The OS and your programs will be installed on / partition. Your music & video files and your documents will be stored on /home partition.
