Yes it is.  Oliver linked to the list of what's on the CD.  It's not
installed by default, never has been, and probably never will be because
enough stuff has working drivers.  If you put the CD back in after
installing and load it as your repository (and disable the online
repositories), you can install it from the Ubuntu CD.
