if you have console access to the machine, security is no longer
a consideration really. it is easy to boot a cd or a floppy or
even reconfigure lilo(maybe grub too, havent tried) to boot to a
root shell

a security through obscurity way would be to run another filesystem
like reiserfs or xfs or jfs or something that doesn't have drivers
for another OS.

you can of course encrypt any files you find sensitive.
