it does... kind of. Since I was unfamiliar with the setup tool, it took
me a few tries to get things close to right. Although one thing I did
discover is that it creates a partition for swap but then makes the
partition on inaccessible and claims it is not there. I'll figure out
how to run make swap on it etc. after it's all up but that's an annoying
feature as well.
What I observed is that I could not access the ubuntu generated logical
volume with the partitioning tool except when they are created. I could
not access the logical one them afterwards which was most annoying.
