Debian Partition

I have downloaded the Debian netinstaller. I have gotten to the part where you have to partition the drive, and this is where I am getting a bit lost. When I did RH9 I could just define what I wanted and name the partitions. I dont seem to have that ability or the partition application is just different enough that its confusing. So in cfdisk I have
hda1 Boot Primary Linux ext3 61212.54 (MB)
Pri/log Free Space 279.66

Help so that I can get

Gosh! I did this last week and I can't remember but click around until you find the "Custom" option - then follow your nose from there. You'll have to delete any current partitions and create everything else you need. Just don't click on the "write/save" option until you are satisfied. I was in the same positon as you once but I'm not there now ----- ie I don't have the screen in front of me (sorry ) !!

Good luck!
