I've never tried it personally, but you might be able to run the Linux compatibility package to access the partition (you'll need the key, of course, to decrypt it). I've never tried it, so I can't say that it's possible...but that's where I'd start looking.

Ooops. Forgot that this encrypted partition was formatted in ReiserFS so now it is propably impossible to use it directly from OpenBSD by mounting...
