Well If you chmod 0700 a folder you're the only one who will be able to get in. Thats not good enough?

theres a few encyption programs out there, and even some encyrptic file systems, but i think bestcrypt is best (i 4got the url but google search it and youll find it fast), it basicly just makes files wich can be mounted by the loopback device, in other words, its like having an encypted partion only it acts like a regular file untill its mounted, even have a verson for windows -- im thinking about using it to encypt cd's and use em on my linux laptop
