I've been able to read a drive partitioned as LVM in Fedora on Ubuntu.
I believe you'll have to install lvm after installing Ubuntu. It would
be a good idea to make a note of your /etc/fstab settings for the LVM
so you can duplicate them on the new install.

Another thing that is great about Ubuntu http://packages.ubuntu.com. I
wasted so much time looking up rpm package names for Fedora in google.
If you want LVM support in Ubuntu, just do a search on that page for
lvm. You'll find lvm2 and lvm-common will provide what you need. You
can also do these searches in Synaptic, but the website is faster.
