Question Using Partition Magic


Ok now i have partition magic 5.0
It has the property that i can made unix partition and swap partition .
I have made these partitions using partition magic
Now when i will install linux 7.0, would the setup asked me again to make these partitions or it will just find it and will install linux
It nothing is wrong with that process can i apply it.or

Should i use the conventional way of making the partitions using the setup?
remember im a newbie and i don't know anything about linux.
This is my first time that im installing linux

it should find them, and you'll need to format UNIX partition into linux native ; swap won't need to be formated though.

Partition magic automatically converts the unix partitions into its file system while making the partition or not?
