Default How do I partition drive w/ Win 7 install CD?

I've decided to re-install Windows 7 on my computer in order to partition the disk, but the setup process doesn't offer an option to set my own partitions. Am I missing something? I can't see how because there aren't many options, the installer wants to do everything for you (typical Microsoft). Is there another version of the installer that allows for partitioning? Otherwise I'll have to install without partitions and then use GParted to edit the partitions, but is there a way around this?

When u get to the screen where u have to select a partition there should be an advanced options button which will display links to create and delete partitions

I looked for it, it's not there. There's an option to install drivers and that's about it.
