It seems there is a graphical display of the partitions it finds, and you can drag the dividing line between two partitions. <BR>
I know I've done that when installing alongside Windows. But I haven't had occasion to do that for a long time. It seems there was an "Install alongside xxxxx" option. <BR>
Strictly speaking for myself, as a user, I almost always use the manual partitioning option. <BR>
I set up a common (fat32) partition, which contains music & pictures, which is mounted on each partition when it boots (Windows as well). <BR>
Then I have two linux partitions - one for my new system, and one for my old system. When I become confident with my new system, I "transfer my flag" from the old linux partition to the new linux partition. <BR>
When I install a newer system, I install it over the top of my old linux partition. <BR>
The process repeats with each Linux release. <BR>

The test case uri-001 for Lubuntu Amd64+Mac (build of Sept 7 2012) differs from what I'm actually seeing on the screen as I attempt to install. In this case I was attempting to install Lubuntu alongside SuSE Linux 12 which was already installed. As I read it, I'm supposed to be able to install Lubuntu alonside another operating system, splitting hard drive space between them with a slider.
The Lubuntu installer provides no such option. It simply offers a choice to either erase everything on the disk, or manually change existing partions.
Wondering if I'm missing something. It seems to me that the test case is written for an Ubuntu installation and parts of it do not apply to Lubuntu.
For the time being, I'm reluctant to either pass or fail the test case. Surely this issue has been raised before.
Any comments would be appreciated.
