If you want a separate /home partition, you need to use gparted to make the partitions before you start the installation. From the liveCD boot, run gparted, partition your HDD into two partitions, whatever size you think you need (I tend to make them more or less the same size, but it's not essential, just make sure you have enough for /, 10GB or more is better in the long run), then run the installer, and select the proper partition for / and for /home. It's probably better to use sda1 or /, and sda2 for /home. The installer will resize the /home partition to put the swap partition at the end, perhaps into an extended partition. You can make more partitions if you want, but I've never seen the need. Keep in mind that you can have only 4 primary partitions, so if you want to use more than what I've recommended, make one an extended partition, so you can add logical partitions to it.
