It is indeed available as an installation option (http://www.ubuntugeek.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/Screenshot-Install2.png).

it is not very good explained in the installation processs , when I saw
"require my password to login and decrypt my home folder"

I thought if I dont check that box, it means Encrypt my partition but dont ask my password everytime .

the phrase is confusing it should be fixed.
