I decided today to try out Ubuntu 12.10, and want to install on my computer alongside Windows 7. I am new to the whole thing and have never even partitioned a hard drive and before I go changing partitions on my drive I want to make sure i am doing things properly.

I am going into install and the option install alongside windows is not available and it only gives me the something else option for advanced users, and completely erasing my windows OS and installing ubuntu (which I don't want to do). Any suggestions or help with this please?
