Thanks for the quick answer, Max.

On the main menu I get 4 options:

  - Guided - use entire disk
  - Guided - use entire disk and set up LVM
  - Guided - use entire disk and set up encrypted LVM
  - Manual

But I don't want LVM, instead I want luks directly on a partition, so I
choose "Manual".  Then I am presented with following menu items:

  - Guided partitioning (puts me back to previous menu)
  - Help on partitioning
  - [list of partitions]
  - Undo changes on partitions
  - Finish partitioning and write changes to disk.

Can you give me a hint where I find the menu you mention?
