Install Ubuntu on existing RAID1 LVM partition?

I am considering moving to Ubuntu from CentOS5, but would like to keep my
partition scheme intact.  Here's what I have:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                       12G  4.7G  6.1G  44% /
/dev/hdb2              99M   29M   65M  31% /boot
/dev/hdd3              99M   22M   73M  23% /bootbk
                       29G  4.1G   23G  16% /data
                      9.5G  8.5G  508M  95% /home
tmpfs                1014M     0 1014M   0% /dev/shm

All the LVM partitions sit on top of a software RAID1 array.  Will the
alternate install CD let me use /dev/mapper/raid1-root for my OS, /dev/hdb2
for my boot, and leave the other partitions alone?
