Here is a nice thread on installing. Find your linux partition sda# you want to install in
as instructed below, use manual install and put in that sda# as instructed below.
Windows uses letters C: D: E: F: and so on and Linux uses sda1, sda2 sda3 and so on.
##Just follow instructions below and you will be fine:

So install it in the same sda# that Windows is in. Is it a bootable USB where you can boot
it into Linux and run in a terminal and it will give you your sda#'s

sudo fdisk -l (lower case L)
