I have an Asus laptop with 2 new 320GB WD hdd's. I want to do a Raid 0 install, but want to put both my / and swap partitions under encrypted lvm for security. What is the best way to do this from the alternative cd?

Do I just set up separate raid 0 partitions for boot, swap, and root? I think going that route would put both swap and root and separate encrypted lvms. I don't want to have to type two passwords at boot.

Thanks for any help you may give....I am not new to Ubuntu or linux, but am fairly new to encrypted lvm.

I have a similar setup and I too have not managed to encrypt both swap and / without having to enter two passwords. –  Andreas Hartmann Sep 22 at 11:10
