Installing Kubuntu on an XP machine

I have been running Kubuntu Dapper on an old Pentium II for several months now 
and have decided I would also like to install it on my Windows XP machine.  I 
have spent several hours searching for tutorials and such to tell me how to 
do this.  There seems to be an area of contention and that is with regard to 
disk partitioning.  Some tutorials say I need to get a program like GParted 
to create my disk partitions; others say that the Kubuntu install disk will 
do that itself.  Which is correct?  Also, if someone could point me to what 
they they think is the best tutorial, I would appreciate it.  I would have 
hoped that this would have been part of the Kubuntu documentation, but I 
can't seem to find it there.
