I figured out the problem: Ubuntu has kind of an autmated installation option for dual booting and so I naturally chose that when I was attempting to install, but it severely limits the options, including number of partitions and what drive you can install to.

there is a third custom option that lets you pick a drive and insert more than one partition. Thanks for your help. If I run into any more issues (which isn't that unlikely) I'll make sure to post again.
