During the installation process Ubuntu will ask where you wish to install it and which partitions you wish to use. I suspect that you simply chose the wrong option of using the whole hard drive, which will prompt Ubuntu to erase all Windows and repartition accordingly. If you choose manual partitioning then the problem will not repeat itself.

Since I was afraid that what happened to you would have happened to me, I used Wubi (http://wubi-installer.org/) to install Ubuntu. Wubi installs Ubuntu in your pc like a file. If you want to move it to a real partition, there are also instructions in the site that you could follow.
