Encrypting logical volumes

Hi all,

I am planning a Fedora 14 installation, and thinking about making separate LV's for:

I think encrypting during installation might be a good idea. Are there any partitions between above mentioned, that should not be encrypted? Can I encrypt all of them?

not sure, but i think encrypting /boot will technicaly not work, because reading the kernel is done before anything. Also i think there is no need for encypting the kernel

Think more about encrypting swap, this contains parts of your information from memory, especialy in case of dump.

Does someone know if encrypting swap this works?
