I've installed Lion from a DVD, but haven't seen any additional partitions...
You won't see the partition through Finder or Terminal directly.
You can see it either by running this in terminal:
Look for something that looks like this:
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *120.0 GB disk0
1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_HFS MacHD 119.2 GB disk0s2
3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3
You can also see it via the System Information screen by clicking on the Serial ATA section and selecting your boot device.

I think it contains only what is necessary to troubleshoot and get you online. It will then download the rest.
Here's some info on it:
