Seems disk encryption (LUKS) is impossible to configure in TC2 as well
(neither with LVM nor without LVM).
Usually the installer crashes when trying any custom change, which seems
to be known bug according to

Actually, I though beta should be feature complete for testing
(ok, 2 days left still :-), did I miss some approved plan to remove extended
storage features (like iSCSI) and LVM, RAID and LUKS installation
from Fedora graphical installer support for F18?

Al it seems to head to "write your kickstart script manually if you need such things".

It means F18 GUI installation will be completely unusable for people
requiring enterprise features but unable to write own kickstart themselves.
