Incest Taboo -- Ancient Egypt

Basically, I was curious about what people could tell me -- and where people could point me for further research -- about the subject line. *points*

Was there, in fact, an incest taboo in place for the non-noble/royal classes during the era of the Pharaohs? What went into that? How serious a taboo was it? Would someone from one class be better able to "get away" with transgressing the taboo than someone from a different social class? What kind of penalties were there?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
