installing linux on extra partition

Forums: 

hey i was wanting to install Ubuntu on a 90 gig partition I made in windows that will allow me to Dual-boot both. I've used the Wubi installer to do it before but this time i was wanting to do it myself since wubi only allowed a max of i think 40 some gb's. So since i have 90 gigs of unallocated space i was wandering if i need to do something with the filing system or while installing Ubuntu it will recognize the partition and be able to use what filing system it wanted to?

Any help is appreciated.
