OpenBSD install on Encrypted disks?

In these day's where people have so much personal data on their computer it's a safe idea to have disk encryption. Let's face it, if your pc with personal data gets stolen, it sucks even more.

I can achieve an install of linux on an encrypted partition with for example Luks. And i read something about the Vnode Disk Driver on openBSD.

My question is: Can you install openbsd on a fully encrypted disk? I prefer AES, because my server is a via epia C7 with padlock, which supports AES accel. (at least i can make that work on debian). But Blowfish, i think that is used with the Vnode Disk Driver, is also okay.

Thanks for any hints
