Yes, I use GPT on some of my plain Opteron machines:
s parted /dev/sda print
Disk geometry for /dev/sda:
Disk label type: gpt
Minor Start End Filesystem Name Flags
1 0.017 4959103.483 lvm
but the boot disk still has a plain DOS partition table. It was
something of a pain to figure out how to do this properly as most of
the utilities don't support GPT well.
