Question Alternate CD LVM Encryption Install

Hi, I'm somewhat new to Linux, but I do have a little experience. I've decided on using one of the *buntus as my distro of choice.

I have Vista installed on my first partition, and I want to install *buntu on my second partition, which is approximately 100 gigs in size. The problem is that when I go to install, the only option for LVM Encrypted is to use the entire disk, which would wipe out my Vista system and my third partitions.

Is there a way to install an *buntu LVM Encrypted system on just it's own partitions and leave my other two alone, and if so, how?
