Just run CD, and follow all steps, when you gonna be asked about partition choose this "new partition" and mark as / ... for boot directory, and of coarse don't forget to format and allocate at the same disk at least 2GB for swap-space...
Also you can squeeze extra space from Windows directory without harm, just don't format Windows disk if you taken space from there.

Take look at guide I give at 6:20 he explains how to mark and format
I can't be sure but it's gonna be something like dev/sda2 or even dev/sda3 .... depends on your actual format.

Unless you are going to be using a program that demands a lot of memory you don't need so much (or any swap) if you have more than 4GBs of RAM. Again this depends on what you're going to be doing in Linux.

PS: You should have just set aside an unformatted free space in windows on the HDD to avoid problems with partitioning. Since you indicate you named it that means you reformatted the space you set aside. Not a terrible thing to do but seemed rather pointless.

As I said, I am a n00b so should I go into windows and keep the partition unallocated???

You shouldn't have to but I do it just to be safe and sure of where and what I'm writing on. And again, the swap size depends on what you're doing. If you have 4GBs you shouldn't need a swap for basic tasks (LibrOffice, web browsing, chat programs, ect.).
