Re: root fs/crypted

Having a crypto install option (even if it's a little more complex to
get) is still better than not having one.

At this point, all one can do is encrypt a filesystem off of a non-
encrypted root partition.  Like removable media or something else that
is mounted by hand.  There are some logistical problems with doing
that for a root filesystem, but those can probably be worked out.

Does anyone know of a good cypherpunks list/site?
