Install ubuntu on a partitioned HDD with free space

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I have a HDD, which has 3 NTFS logical partitions. I use this HDD only for storage, because I have a SSD for the boot drive. Now, among with the 3 logical partitions, I have some free, unallocated space on the HDD: I will extend the free space to aprox ~10GB. The question: will I be able to install Ubuntu on the free space, without affecting the NTFS partitions? (HowTos)
