All are provided out of the box, provided network-manager is <= 0.8.  We
do have network-manager >= 0.9 support in testing for the upcoming R14
release, along with HAL- and DBUS-less mount support.

Our Stable Relase Update (SRU) will be publicly released along
with packages for Ubuntu Precise in the next week or two, though I would
recommend sticking with a slightly older version of Ubuntu (e.g. Oneiric
or Natty) due to some fairly serious bugs in Precise itself which are not
TDE specific.

If you have any additional questions feel free to ask!
