I did, within the installation process I selected the unallocated space and
clicked 'New' which formatted the space into a new NTFS partition (by the
way, this newly-created partition is unreadable for PartitionMagic, but
Windows XP seems to see it all fine (creates a new 'E' drive)).
Anyway, I wouldn't have been able to click the 'Next' button if I hadn't
created that partition.
Thanks anyway.. but for some reason it's something else
