do you also choose to format the partitions as ext3 as part of the install?
Do you set these as "mount points" as well?
If you are just renaming them, the installation won't go ahead. I usually recommend just using Partition Magic to free up the space that will be required for your Linux install. This is a question that I answer over and over with Linux so I have created a quick reference in PDF format Linux_Partitioning
I hope this helps with a basic understanding of Linux partitioning requirements.
