Ubuntu alternate install CDs have supported disk encryption in the
partitioner at least since Jaunty.

Karmic has some pretty compelling reasons to upgrade, though:
- automake1.11 - AM_SILENT_RULES is awesome
- networkmanager supports PEAP with GTC (ANU-Secure works!)
- kernel mode setting is really neat to watch.

There's a known issue with flash on amd64 machines, though, that might
make you want to hold off until after release.
