mounting encrypted luks partition with keyfile

Hi i whanted to have encrypted volumes in fedora 10 (/home swap etc, not root since cypttab is located there ^^ ) installation that would be able to mount the luks encrypted partitions with an keyfile at boot time.

My idea is that i whant the /boot mounted on a usb key and the keyfile stored on it so the disks becomes unaccesable without a password if usb key is removed.

I have gotten this to work quite nicely on opensuse but since fedora 10 crypttab layout is different i cant figure out how to get it to work.

reference that i used earlier for this:


I would be deeply grateful if someone could help me get this to work.
