so do you mean I should format my disk, prepare the two layer configuration
(lvm and dmcrypt) as I prefer and then simply install over it, after

ok, actualy I would prefer a minimal installation set and then add what I
 want with yum and his friends, I noticed a netinstall disk or similar,
 I'll give a look.
