Default Unlock Existing LUKS Encrypted Drives With A Keyfile

Am looking at this for Fedora 15
Three existing encrypted partitions. all on /dev/vda
/dev/vda2 (/vda3,vda4) all on an lvm
/dev/vda1 = /boot not luks.

This is a KVM guest. with a 31gb raw storage format,
using KVM Virt-manager to connect if DE is required.

Using seriel console, I'm finding it a pain to keep entering luks p\w.
Can your article be used with an existing /dev/mapper device(s)

I'm guessing I would put the keyfile on /boot.
As any hacker would still need to unlock the "host box"
