Does anyone know of a good Howto on how to fully encrypt a HDD (even the /boot!) with GRUB2?

Is it possible using fedora 14 or ubuntu 10.04?

Please don't just post a link as an answer, both because the linked site may be unavailable, and because as it is your answer doesn't show what it's about. Summarize the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Gilles Apr 27 '11 at 7:21
@Gilles, well, that's discussion, not final resolution -- copying huge amount of text with losing formatting does not make any sense for me (not even mentioning traffic stealing -- images -- which is forbidden on all sites, because of technical issues, not good manners). Linking is valid mechanism in Internet, and copying Internet "just in case" is somewhat redundant. In short, no-go. – greenoldman Apr 28 '11 at 4:49
Summarize, not copy. An answer with just a link is not useful (and trigger-happy viewers have been known to flag such answers as spam). – Gilles Apr 28 '11 at 7:06
