  An Unencrypted Look at FileVault

Most of what's on most people's drives doesn't really need to be secure. My advice is to make a second "user" on your computer with File Vault turned on. With "fast user switching" in OS 10.3.x you can easily switch between the secure and the "unsecure" users. If you only have a few files to secure then I suggest making an AES encrypted disk image which you can mount from within your user account. You can even make a SPARSE image from the disk utility. There is usually no need to secure your entire user folder, unless you are particularly paranoid.
