I might have misinterpreted your question earlier as "creating multiple
partitions within a single RAID5 array", which is why I suggested LVM.
I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be possible to create multiple
partitions /of/ RAID5, that might look something like this, for example
(ignoring the grub/lilo boot problem for a moment):
RAID5 (1): sda1 sdb1 sdc1
RAID5 (2): sda2 sdb2 sdc2
RAID5 (3): sda3 sdb3 sdc3
I've done similar with RAID1 in the past. It seems very messy to me now,
and I much prefer to just have the one partition and put LVM over the

Don't know an awful lot about crypt, sorry. But from what I remember, it
integrates with LVM very well.
