The proper way to do it is to read a *key* from a USB drive at boot time. In F8
it didn't take too much hacking in /etc/rc.sysinit to load the USB storage
modules, wait a few seconds to detect the drive, mount it, and then do the luks
magic to unlock the LVM partition. I haven't tried in F9. It would be really
nice to have this supported by the installer.
