File System Encryption auto unlock

Hi,

I enabled the filesystem file system encryption upon install of Fedora 17. I would like it to auto-mount auto decrypt like Ubuntu does. I want to only put my password in once, but still encrypt my files. Can anyone here help me?

Note: In Ubuntu, you can chose to encrypt your home directory. When you boot your system, Ubuntu automatically decrypts the home directory for you before you log in.

Edit: If it is not possible, how do I disable the disk encryption without reinstalling Fedora? I already have a lot of programs that I have added and I don't want to go through that whole process again.
