encrypted home on Slamd64

I have a laptop with Slamd64 RC2 (seems to be very close to Slackware 10.1)

I would like to have my home encrypted and automounted at logon using my logon password.

I've tried the instructions here: However, they are a bit outdated and don't include installing or configuring pam. I do have an encrypted loopback device that I can mount manually, I just can't get pam and pam_mount working.

Has anyone set this up? Any advice? Thanks.
