Partitioning during Clean Install

I know I have did this when I was installing Win 7 and was able to have Win 7 do the partitioning. If possible can some one tell me the screen where i can get into the partitioning phase. I can't find it again to save my life.

Thank you

Can you tell us what exactly do you want to do and whether you are talking about XP or Win7.
