You need an encrypted filesystem to do that. Google for 'encrypted
filesystem' and you'll find a plethora of guidance how to setup something
like that. It most likely *will* require a password (manual intervention)
at bootup to make this reasonably secure however.

Nice try, but if someone is able to remove the harddisk from your server,
don't you think they may also be able to grab that key from your system?
Or take steal the entire system? As long as you can't physically secure
access to your system, it will be *very* hard to accomplish what you want
without some sort of password.
