Not quite sure what you mean by "alternate".

You can override (that is, manually change) the Ubuntu chosen partitions arrangement.

Why do you want to install Ubuntu, might it be better to try it as a guest OS in virtualbox/VMware or to use a live CD version?

Posting the output of "sudo fdisk -l" will give people a better idea of your disk arrangement.
