    During the period where it asks you to partition your disk. Probably, you have chosen the default. What Linux distro you are using?

    If you don't want to do it again, you should use Gparted for resizing the partitions. Be careful because resizing may harm your existing files.

    Based on the linux distro search google for installation with screen shots.

    Good Luck!

    Partitioning the disc is usually an advanced option that can be selected just before the installation starts. For example, you choose 'Manual' when installing Linux Mint (old screenshot here).
