I put an encrypted f/s on an FC9 install, and the boot hung waiting

still hung. So I put it in automount and not in fstab and it still
hangs, and I finally took it out of everywhere and the boot process
can still see it.

I want the system to boot without the filesystem, and mount it only on
demand, but by simply existing it seems to be found and validated at
boot time. Can someone tell me where the boot process is finding the
f/s? It's not used for normal operations, only for special operations
by people with the password.

Is there a way to keep the boot from asking about it until used?
  man crypttab

Thanks, but I don't see quite how to select "on demand" in that man page. If I comment out the entry it isn't requested at boot, but it isn't requested when I try to mount it, I get a "must specify filesystem type" prompt.
I'll continue to try things and let you know, at least now I can get the
system to come up, I can always go back to cryptoloop if I must, or
build aes-loop into the kernel. This was just a test, and it isn't quite
as easy to use as I had hoped.
