Okay, so I created my partitions as such:

/dev/sda1 -- Boot partition
/dev/sda2 -- BIOS boot partition
/dev/sda3 -- files partition

Now I would like to use cryptsetup to format
/dev/sda3
but the livecd that I am using "install-amd64-minimal . . ." does not seem to have cryptsetup available.

What do I do to get cryptsetup while not having a filesystem to put things on?

Can I install gentoo using the installation guide and SystemRescueCD smoothly or are there any tricks?
And does SystemRescueCD come with LVM support?

I use always SystemRescueCD, which is really better than Gentoo minimal cds: you have support for a lot of hardware, especially wireless interfaces, support for lvm, cryptsetup, partition types... and even a graphical environment with browser and office tools !

So the answers are YES :)
