How to tell if a distro installs using LVM

Is there any way to tell, before you download and burn, if a distro uses LVM?

I know of no way to tell. One would have to read through the install software and see what it is going to do. In Fedora if you let it make it own partitions it will use LVM from what I have seen. If you manually do it then you can make it either LVM, ext2, ext3 or a few others.

Distribution: RHEL 5.1 with Pieces of this and that.
Kernel, KDE 3.5.8 and KDE 4.0 beta, Plus Development src.rpm, ATI fglrx64_7_1_0-8.433-1 rpm with 3D and DRI working.
Acer 5100-5840 with webcam, ati, sdcard reader, sound, atheros based wireless, all working. Only thing not working is the memory stick reader.
