First, it is pointless to encrypt Puppy itself, since the OS is freely available on the web. Second, depending on how you use Puppy, the Save file should only contain settings and installed programs. Again, no point in encrypting those. Save personal stuff in a separate partition or drive, which can be encrypted. Third, be careful what you ask for, you might get it. If you encrypt something, then lose or forget the password, you've lost whatever was encrypted.
hmmm that other post u refer to is super complicated
i was just thinking along the lines of like with unbuntu or mint when u install them they will ask u if u want to encrypt the OS then it does everything for you. i guess I don't think i am good enough to do this myself without a automated gui tool to help me.
is there any puppy release that has an encrypted install option on it's live dvd??
