When installing SuSE, one can check a checkbox to encrypt the entire
hard drive during the installation process. Anaconda should provide
such a feature too. Many businesses start requiring their laptop
drives to be encrypted in case they get stolen or lost.
This is dependent on the crypto target being added for device-mapper
in the kernel...

124789, "[PATCH] Add encrypted root filesystem support to mkinitrd"?
Not completely a duplicate, but that one has a bit more dialog in it
