Usually it shows the existing partitions and provisions to modify it. You should have a root filesystem (/). The SWAP filesystem is optional, but RedHat clones seems to be picky about the SWAP partition and its size. So once you install LINUX you can change SWAP from a partition to a local file.

You better run fdisk though the installation utility or on one of the terminals available with the utility. Try to create a SWAP partition with almost double the size of memory.
