Thats good.
You can read about partitioning your drive

It is minimalistic but it gives you an impression

So what I usually do is having two partitions (assume you install
on /dev/sda)
/dev/sda1 about 512MB format ext3 or ext4 will be boot partition
/dev/sda2 the rest of the drive

when installing I choose to encrypt (luks) /dev/sda2
then create logical volumes on the encrypted partition. Typically:


you've got some recommendations about root and opt - the rest depends on you
swap is at least 1x or 2x the memory you have. I choose the maximum memory
size I can place into the machine (you never know)

and then install as mentioned before: first minimal debian and then TDE

good luck
