Install on existing Linux partitions

I cannot seem to install Linare on my PC without loosing my existing partitions. My PC has a Windows XP partition on one hard drive and several Linux partitions on the second hard drive. The installation program does not see any of these partitions. Instead, it just sees both hard drives as free space. I would like to install Linare on one of the existing Linux partitions. Iíve tried both the manual and automatic partition options in the installation program but without any success. Any suggestions on how I can install Linare on one of the existing Linux partitions would be greatly appreciated.
