What do I do when I get to 'Installation Type'

I'm trying to install LM17.3 Cinnamon alongside Windows 7 and am stuck (I've read documentation in the forums and installation instructions but nothing is clear on the below points). The LM17.3 live DVD works, so I'm part of the way through but am completely stuck with the partitioning. I see an ins...

Re: Can't Update

OK, I managed to get Sudo apt-get update to work and got the list in the terminal, but this didn't help me at all, using update manager continued to fail.

Installation screen expects Username and Password?

I've decided to give LMDE 2012 (32 bit) a try on an old laptop before installing on my main system.

Well I do not have these since the installation hasn'...
