One further question:
_ I've read encryption is selected at the dataset level and that you 
can't boot from an encrypted dataset;
_ somewhere else I read you cannot boot from an encrypted pool.

So just to be sure: can I create only one zpool and boot from it, while 
having part of it (one or more datasets) encrypted, as long as the one 
where the OS is is in clear?

  bye & Thanks
