As far as I remember, there is a console available during install. You should be able to create the slices and partitions with sysintall and afterwards switch to the console to do the rest. I don't see why you think x should care if the home partition is encrypted or not. The process is transparent for the applications. I'm currently using an encrypted home slice and don't see any problems. My setup is very similar to: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/disks-encrypting.html#AEN25438 Fabian -- http://www.fabiankeil.de/
