How to boot an encrypted filesystem from removable medium?

I would like to have a completely encrypted filesystem and boot from either a thumbdrive or a floppy to decrypt everything as it boots up. I know it's possible but I can't find much on how to do it.

Can anyone guide me along a little?? Thanks!
