    Did you ever live with the fear that somebody may break into your system one day and steal your files? Well, those days are over, because you can now have an entire encrypted operating system. This was the first time I thought about taking the time to encrypt my whole operating system. Is encrypting the entire operating system worth the time? I feel encrypting persional information like phone numbers or bank information is important but most of what is on my operating system is things I don;t care that others see. However there is a way to encrypt the whole operating system with a Live CD to protect everything on a Linux users computer.

    Did you ever live with the fear that somebody may break into your system one day and steal your files? Well, those days are over, because you can now have an entire encrypted operating system. For this setup, we used a freshly installed Ubuntu 7.04 with up-to-date software, nothing else installed. But the following guide is supposed to work with your actual Ubuntu 7.04 installation (no reinstall needed). Beware though: if you don't have the partitions setup like it
