You can configure it in your kernel (I use this configuration in my
kernel 2.6.7), there is also
a Free Open Project (try search it in the net) that do it and they tell
that is 100% secure.

I afraid about this question, I don't remember the exactly name of the
Java file. The place is under your
Thunderbird directory, in Linux maybe is '.thunderbird' or '.mozilla' in
your root. Looking for the for some
ASCII file that look like init all your preferences. You can define some
unique name in your preferences
And after it loking for for the file that contain this name with:
root> find <thunderbird-local-root> -type f | xargs grep

Mmmm, I don't think that lilo can do it some thing like this.
Try run 'fs' and check if the partition is there, If from windows you
see it you must also see it from Linux. After
run 'fs', just add it to lilo, run it and that is all.
