	After contemplation, my reply is:

	The installer will allow you to bypass any partitions you don't
	wish to acknowledge or touch. The others it will use if so
	instructed for the purposes you specify.

If it was me, though it might not be required, /boot, /home, /, and
swap, you have created would be formatted by the installer. Just to be
sure to be sure. I do it this way, but as stated, probably not required.

I'm unsure about the GRUB controls and just how much it shows without
actually asking it to show these? It has been a long time since I put
anything but one Debian operating system on a disk. Also probably in
ways that are not necessarily correct or required.

Sorry I can't help you more.
