Dear Malcolm,

Believe it or not, but if you decide at the very last moment NOT to format
and/or decide do NOT repartition your disk(s), it will not happen as long as
you press the final OK button. (Otherwise switch of the power).
But if you want to install (K)Ubuntu Linux, formatting of the installation
drive in the fileformat YOU want is required.
