     Do you want all of ubuntu in this 10gig space or only the users
  data ?

    When you said to use sda3 as /home, you said "use this space
  for users data". If you want to use sda3 for all of Ubuntu, you have
  to use it for "/" (which is the "root" you see in the error message).

    If you want to use some other space for the system, you will
  have to proceed differently.

       Hope this helps,
