I don't have it installed on here.

I also do not have the disks with me to give exact directions. But it is not going to be hard to tell which partition is for swap and which one is for linux

just do the custom disk partitioning and yu will see your partitions

the windows partition can be mounted in /mnt/win or anywhere you choose to mount it, I would make the / partition ext3

Another suggestion...

I would delete the 15G partition and make a 100Meg partition to mount on /boot then make the rest of the space to mount on /
