A few questions: Security, Encryption, Distro, etc...view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I finally got Suse 11.3 (KDE) and Ubuntu 10.04 (Gnome) on encrypted partitions a few weeks ago. Both would install fine but I had issues with getting them to both boot. I finally found a way around that using GAG bootloader. (I have four hard drives, 3 sata and one ide.) I upgraded Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10 and that made it so I couldn't boot Suse 11.3. So I just haven't had the time to fix it all. (HowTos)
