Re: Using TrueCrypt to encrypt my whole hard drive
Using TC you can set up a hidden OS, and encrypt the entire hard drive. Truecrypt installs its own MBR from what I read. However, this feature of making a whole disk encryption and hidden OS in TrueCrypt does not support linux distros. You should read bodhi.zazens blog about setting up encrypted drives and home partitions. I know some of these are cross platform and will work with your windows boot as well.
