Swap isn't 100% needed, 2gb at most.

I don't make ANY partition...when you tell it to use largest free space, the installer will automatically format a swap AND ext3 partition. I like to let it choose the best size for things.

You have plenty of space already unallocated, just run installer and let it use largest free space.

If you use Wubi its much easier to install.

You can install an ubuntu dual boot scenario all inside of windows.

Wubi - The Easiest Way to Linux

And if you ever want to remove ubuntu, you just do so from the add/remove programs in windows.
