I suggest this because I think for those new to linux who chose mint. Wouldn't it be delightful if a newbie has just installed a stranger OS for him/her with no sweat? :D
Alright, installing from a live CD/USB is already a blessing, but how about those who are just first time or never experienced a dual boot os installation? wouldn't it be so exciting and interesting if the installation has a guide out-of-the-box for the process of partitioning part?
Longlive Linx Mint !

However, most questions are being raised it during(!) the installation. In most cases, a second computer (for reading manual) is not present.

This was the first hurdle I had to deal with when I started using Linux and extra help with partitioning for newbies doing a first instillation would be a good thing.
why not choose a partition software with simple interface? there is already an idea for using gparted. add some options i.e. checkboxes for dual install, updated install even new to linux and where to install it. just keep it simple and let it install automatically. you shouldn't have to go into advanced options just for install. also the manual will be ignored mostly.
