Did you click on one of the partition choices it offered you? If you clicked on next without selecting a partition then it doesn't know where to put the files.

Which distribution are you trying to install? The installer varies from distro to distro: some are very simple, some are very confusing. Have you looked for installation instructions on your distro's webiste? It's much easier when you know what's going to happen next, and have some idea of what it's trying to do!
