Good question, sorry if that wasn't clear.  To my understanding, you
cannot encrypt an already unencrypted partition.  I believe you'd need
to back-up the data to another location, and then follow the procedures
in the install-guide (either during anaconda or from an already
installed system).

Thanks,
