Hello all, I am rather new to Linux but would like to get my feet wet. I don't want to install Ubuntu on my laptop yet however I want it on my flash drive so it is portable and easy to use on any computer that allows usb boot. I want to install the OS using the encryption method but I also want to partition the flash drive do Ubuntu gets 30Gb of space and the remaining 34 can be used as normal storage. I have watched a few YouTube videos but none of them have helped me figure out how to proceed. I also read the Ubuntu install guid with no luck. Is there a good way to accomplish this.
Some of you are probably wondering why I want the OS encrypted, well I don't want any data or personal information getting into the wrong hands and if the OS is encrypted it will be harder for some one to obtain this information.
