Default install on eee 1000h

A friend with a somewhat older eee 1000h on it would like me to
install ubuntu for her (will probably go with lubuntu as it works well
off the usb and a regular install would probably be a bit much for
this machine).

However there are already 4 partitions on this machine. One has only
39 megabytes on it. Gparted lists it as a unknown type. Since she
needs to keep XP on here, how can I tell if deleting that partition
will do harm? Not found an answer by googling for it at least not so
far.

Thanks

garyk

Can you give us the whole list of partitions?

It might be some sort of system recovery or diagnostics volume.
