First select manual partitioning (all these are the same screen):

Then select the disk (should resemble one of these):

Choose the partition to configure (I think these are actually the same screen as
previous group, except with disk's partitions expanded):

Here's the screen where the main business gets done, selecting mount point, format
type, mount options, volume label:

Select mount point detail screen:

If I knew how to get my own screencaps from a text install on real hardware (not a
virtual machine) I would make my own web page to do what the Debian Handbook seems
can't be bothered to do. It would probably be somewhat like
https://www.pontikis.net/blog/debian-7-wheezy-rc1-lamp-server-setup-step-by-step
except the images would be big enough to see without having to open each in turn.
