Sure, but you still have to be able to tell d-i which partitions you
want for swap and root, etc. Partman can't tell you want disks you have.
The new images will (hopefully) default to partitioner/partconf, which
should be able to understand your disk and let you select what you want
as root. Sometimes it's a bit byzantine.
