Ubuntu – Installing Ubuntu with Windows, which is left and right when allocating space


I'm installing Ubuntu (or Xubuntu/Lubuntu/Kubuntu) alongside Windows 7/XP. I got to the screen that says, "Allocate drive space by dragging the slider below." On the following screen, I'm not sure whether the right side or the left side is for Ubuntu or for Windows. Which side is which?
