Openstack is quite exciting, and very strategically important for Ubuntu Server's goal to be the best cloud host and guest.

Several of us have been testing it against the diablo release, and it seems to work fine. Make sure you are running the release version of diablo, as we found quite a few issues with the ec2 compatibility that were fixed late.

There shouldn't be any special setup. 

One thing that has not been tested is using swift as the S3 component directly, we have only tested nova-objectstore directly.

So, good luck, and hopefully you can report back here how your experience goes!
