Check out this thread:

It deals specifically with encrypted file systems, but you could adapt it to an encrypted swap space with relative ease.

thanks for the feedback.
it seems like dm-crypt would work with kernel 2.6.
I'd like a script working with kernel 2.4 (I'm using the knoppix/damn small linux base).
I might be able to extrapolate the script from knoppix MIB CD as it's visible once the filesystem is mounted, but then i might need some guidelines to make the needed adaptations.
