Ubuntu install giving wierd error for this newbie

I dl'ed the latest live cd version of ubuntu and just tried putting it on my laptop(brand new dell 1505). I used gpartd to adjust the windows partition and it worked flawlessly. So the live cd fires up and all is well, I hit the install button, configure the time, and go into the partitions. I know that I need a / partition as well as a swap. I have both on the "prepare mount points" page. Now it is saying there is and I quote:

No mount point selected for partition 1 disc USB/SCSI/SATA 1 (Primary)[sda1].

? I thought all I needed was a root and a swap to start going. I can tell you what my partition table looks like if need be. What am I doing wrong here guys, I have never seen this before.

one other question while I have you, I also read somewhere that it will not recognize the dual cpu, and there is a command I have to type. Can I type that command after I install all of ubuntu, or do I do it during the install?
