Multipathing in "Hyper-V Server 2008"?

Does anyone know if the free version of Hyper-V "Hyper-V Server 2008" is capable of being put on a multipath'ed fiber SAN?  

The free Hyper-V installation I dropped on a Dell M600 blade server is seeing the same LUN on the Clarion CX3-20 as four drives.  In full a Windows 200x installation, I would have an EMC PowerPath app to take care of that and let the OS see it as only one drive.  What do I do in that free stand alone Hyper-V Server 2008?

    Yes it can be put on as long as you have the windows mpio driver running and the paths configured.
