Install Debian with encrypted home partition (without lvm)


Have a desktop with some spare space (14Gb) and wanted to install Debian Wheezy onto it.

Approximate partition layout:
/dev/sda5 swap 1Gb
/dev/sda6 /home 4Gb
/dev/sda7 / 9Gb

Understand that I can encrypt the /home manually with luks, which I had with my other computer (with help from some printed notes).

Wondering if I can do the same (ie encrypting /home during installation, non-lvm) using Debian's install CD.

I have done a couple of debian installs but must admit I never paid attention to this.
However, the installer manual says it's possible here:

http://www.debian.org/releases/stabl...n#di-partition

There is more info on the process when you scroll further down.
