I've been bitten a few times with the partitioner programs. 
My strategy now is to configure my partitions from the 
Gparted live CD, prior to a fresh installation.

Then using the Custom Layout, I only format and mount 
partitions with no data on them, like /, and /tmp. That way 
you safeguard any valuable data from being deleted during 
the installation.
