Boolean prime ideals

Using the package "DiscreteMath`Combinatorica`" we can easily obtain a
representation of a finite boolean algebra of order n by typing

ShowGraph[BooleanAlgebra[n]].

Is there something (very simple) I can do to obtain only the points of the
prime ideals of the boolean algebras ?
Thank you.



(Def: if B is a boolean algebra, a prime ideal is an ideal I of B such that
if a,b in B and  a/\b in I, then a in I or b in I.)
