	I've been playing around with geli and I was wondering if anyone 
managed to actually use the feature which loads the keyfile before the 
root filesystem is mounted.

	Specifically, to use something similar in /boot/loader.conf:


	If it worked, please let me know. I couldn't do it on a 6.1-REL0. 
(keeps saying password is wrong, probably because it doesn't "see" the 
keyfile). Of course, the .key file is on unencrypted media.

	I appreciate your time and suggestions.
