Description of problem:
When installing Fedora 9-Alpha in graphical mode you can specify that your partitions will be encrypted, then partition your hard drive.
But in text mode, there is no such option anywhere, you can only partition your hard disk drive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora9-Alpha i386 rescue CD
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with Fedora 9-Alpha rescue CD
2. choose text mode installation
3. when asked for disk partitioning you can't specify you want them to be encrypted. (the graphical installation permits it).
The partitions where created unencrypted.
You should have the choice to decide if the system will be encrypted or not just like in graphical mode.
Text mode does not have all of the features of the graphical installation. If
someone sends us patches to enable additional functionality, we'll (probably)
take them but in most cases, we're not going to be adding new functionality there.
You could still set up encryption during a text-mode install using kickstart,
Yes, but not interactively
