    12.10 install with LVM on dual boot system

    I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 to my hard drive. I already have windows 7 installed on the drive and I play to encrypt it with TrueCrypt once I get linux working.

    I've done this before with the 12.04 version using the alternate CD but I'm having problems setting up LVM on my drive. I create a 250MB ext4 /boot partition and then create a LVM. Then in the LVM I make a / ext4 partition. The problem is that I can't split up the LVM to make a /swap.

    I feel like there is something obvious that I am missing but I can't figure it out.

    Edit: I was using the "something else" option in the partitioning step so that I can setup a /boot partition and not have ubuntu overwrite my MBR since I will need TrueCrypt to do that when I install it.
