Repartition your hard drive and do the following:
Lets suppose your hard drive is hda and your windows partition is hda1.
If this is your configuration there is no need to create an extended partition.
Use Linux fdisk to create three primary partitions like this:
hda2 , Linux Native , mounted as /boot (it must be small)
hda3 , Linux Swap (maximum 128MB)
hda4 , Linux Native , mounted as /
If this doesn't work please post how you have partitioned your hard drives.
