When you see the option :
"Remove linux partitions on selected .... "
then please click the message and choose :

"Create custom layout"
.. which will bring you to a window, where you
can choose your preferred partition.

Well, you don't have to make space if you already prepared
a partition beforehand : just highlight it, and : "Edit" >
tick for 'Format' (ext3) and set the mount point ( / ).


Making the partitions ready before you use the CentOS
install disk is the preferred metod :
The "Gparted Live CD" is recommended.
