How to install Linux into a existing spare partition?

I am trying to install Linux Ubuntu 7.10 in to a spare partition (drive d) in my laptop. There if 30GB free in dat partition and nothing else saved. However during Ubuntu installation, the Partition part, it would let select the drive and only allows me to use the entire hard drive, I’m not sure wat to do in manual partition manager either. (Live CD) Can anyone tell me a way of installing Ubuntu onto the spare partition without affecting the other partition at all.

The spare partition is ntfs format.
I trying to dual boot with XP Home Edition SP2.
