I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my Netbook Asus Eeepc-900 from bootable USB. When I see partitions screen I just wanna one single partition and then install Ubuntu, but has some many options that I don't know which choose.

Here are the options: 1 First part 2 Second part 3 Option from menu

Well, I would leave only a partition with Ubuntu installed. Grateful!

You have two hard disks (one 4GB and one 16GB), and the 16GB disk has LVM set up on it. So the structure would be like this:


The LVM volumes (the ones starting with /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-) are actually contained in /dev/sdb5. (You can use the lsblk command to find out.)

So you can install Ubuntu in ubuntu--vg-root (use it for /). The other partitions can be left alone.
