    if you can boot off the liveCD just fine you can partition your drive from there. Then you can tell ubuntu to use the existing partitions during installation.

    In Kubuntu go to
    Start->Applications->System->Partition Editor

    or from the terminal you can just type

    Code:
    sudo gparted
    You'll need one EXT3 parition for the root / filesystem, and another partition for SWAP. Make the swap partition at least as large as your ram. Optionally you can make a /home partition too.

    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
