Pre-Hung interior door

I am putting a new pre-hung hollow core door from Menards in my bathroom.

I took out the old door and frame, and the new tile went right up to the rough opening...but the carpet going into the hallway is lower than the tile that is in the bathroom. This problem will probably be solved when i re-carpet the hallway, but in the meantime here is the problem.

How do i install the door jamb? If i rest the jamb on the tile, there will be a gap between the jamb and the carpet in the hallway. How do i get around this, or will I have to notch out where the tile is, so that it sits all the way down?

Hopefully you can understand what im trying to say lol

Can you post a picture of the door, and the area it needs to be installed to?
