Re: dracut, or should booting a LiveCD touch the hard disk?

True, if you

1) have encrypted /
2) have a separate /usr
3) have that /usr encrypted with a *different* password than /
4) are using a graphical splash instead of the verbose details one

Then you have to know to enter your /usr password after your /
password, because we don't have anyway to tell you.
