This is the first time I am installing Linux.
I have Windows 7 on my C drive. I want to just format the C drive and then install Linux on the C drive only. So how can I install it on only the one drive (partition) replacing Windows 7?

When installing it is using the complete hard disk space.

The C: drive does not translate to Linux partition structure. However, when installing, select manual partition setup, and select the existing partition that you want to format. Set that as mount point /, and make sure you allocate some of the drive for your SWAP area.
