If you don't want to type so many passwords, why not just use 1

If you really want multiple encrypted partitions you'll probably have
to hack the init script in the initrd.  The first google hit:


shows an example "mkinitrd.dmcrypt-usb" script.  Just after it does a
cryptsetup on the rootfs you would setup your other two partitions.

And, yes this is talking about a usb flash drive, but the basic ideas
apply to HD installations as well.
