what partition setup are you trying to achieve??

i recommend cfdisk to do it...

an example setup for your 80gb drive:

/dev/hda1 = "/" 5GB (reiser filesystem)

/dev/hda5 = "swap" 1GB

/dev/hda6 = "/home" 74GB (reiser filesystem)


just my two cents...

remember to reboot right after you partition, BEFORE you start the install...
