Disk encryption and recovery/migration to another box

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – So the paranoid story goes like this: I have a 6-yrs old laptop that I use and which is slowly dying (right side of the screen is no longer working, the power cable is interrupted and since last night Fedora is working sloooow). Since I have some work-related stuff on it, I decided to encrypt the hdd using the option available in Anaconda (I did a fresh install of Fedora this spring). I've been looking into F16 docs for how to access encrypted data if: - I want to use a live CD of Fedora - I want to reinstall Fedora - I want to migrate everything to a new box - I want to use the same (HowTos)
