You might get Puppy Linux to fit in that small of a partition but the LMDE ISO is over 1200 megabytes and it is compressed.
No way will that work.
Also swap should be sda3.

Use GParted to create your partitions. Make them whatever size you deem appropriate. Format one of them as swap. Make a smaller one to serve as root and a larger one to serve as home. Add flags and labels if you want.
Then exit GParted. When you get back to the installer, THEN right-click on your intended root partition and assign it a root mount point (/). Also right-click on your intended home partition and assign to /home.
Then select your root partition and click 'next' (or 'install' or whatever the button says).
