The way I read it, you have a "C drive" and a "D drive"--this is the nomenclature that windows uses for partitions. The typical linux installer will ask you how you want partitions set up. If the "D drive" is the space to be used, then you would simply change the partition type to Linux, format with Linux file system (eg ext4) and then set up the mount point as "/" (root)
You can use Mint's install CD/DVD to do that. Keep in mind that all data on that partition will be lost. Keep also in mind that doing it this way you won't have a swap partition, it is easier to delete the partition and let Mint use the free space.
