Re: mounting encrypted linux partition on windows





Well, I've already done that: I had my root (/) and even my
swap partition encrypted during the installation process
and my Fedora works just fine. I'm kind of new at this, but
from I've seen in the internet, it seems to be common practice.
I just haven't been able to mount the root partition when
I boot Windows.

Yes, I must leave the /boot partition without encryption, is that what you mean? Anyway, I intend to try again with FreeOTFE first.

I don't think you'll be able to use it for root either, unless you do some
customization to the initrd. Getting it to work for /home will probably
be significantly easier.
