Well, if all I wanted to store was documents it wouldn't be a biggie.  But 
then I thought... hey... all the passwords I have stored in the browser, I 
don't want those floating around either, so I'd like to have my .mozilla 
directory also encrypted.  It was just easier to encrypt the whole home 

It looks like I'm going to need a few hours to study how the fuse-based 
encryption under RedHat works.  I have a couple of encrypted partitions on 
my disk but it's not clear how they work.  I can decrypt them if I enter 
the root password first...

Does anyone know of a good step-by-step document about how this works?
