    boot up from Ubuntu CD. click on GParted. its in Menu. you can resize/delete/create partition through GParted. either delete Mandriva partition or start installation and select Mandriva's partition as install Location.
    OR
    execute this code in gnome-terminal
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    it will ask for password. press 'Enter' key. post the output here so that we could suggest you proper steps.

    minimum 5GB.
    6GB-8GB is good. rest depends on you.
