If the live CD sees the disks, then they should be picked up by the
installer no problem.  

If the live CD *cannot* see the disks, then you will probably have
trouble installing.  

The feature of "being able to see the disks" relates to the Linux kernel
in use: typically this is the same in the 'live' environment as for the
installed system.
