I have an alternate install CD here and am getting stuck on manual
partition to set up a dual boot encrypted filesystem.
I already have Windows installed so I can't use the 'use entire disk to
create encrypted LVM option - I need to use partition space set aside.
However, once a unencrypted /boot and encrypted partition is created, I
can't work out how to create encrypted partitions (logical?) within the
encrypted LVM? Or do I need to create an encrypted partition for each
partition of /swap and /root?
From reading some guides, they hinted that 'virtual' partitions are
created within an encrypted LVM, so I presume only one password is
needed at boot.
I can't find any instructions that detail this manual step at all (any
links appreciated) - they only deal with the automated option for a full
Hopefully the new version of Ubuntu will be easier.
