After you boot from your install media (either dvd or usb) go to disk utilities on the top menu and format your hard disk as Mac OS Extended (journaled).
##never use Case Sensitive##
Took me a bit to work that one out haha. For reference to anyone who ends up here via google yes you can install Mac OSX Lion on an MBA from a burnt DMG over the top of Linux, you just have to reformat the partition like plebs said.
Out of curiosity, why not case-sensitive? I didn't pick it because I remember that HFS+ can't technically handle it, so it must be an extension or something.

"Some file systems store filenames as specified when the files is created meaning files MyName and myname would be valid names for different files concurrently in the same directory. Those file systems are called "case-sensitive". Some of these filesystems include a parameter, specified when the filesystem is created, which allows references to files regardless of the case. For example a file named "FirstFile" can be referenced as "firstFile", "firstfile", etc."
