Linux boot loaders supporting full disk encryption?

I am looking for a Boot-loader which is smart enough to boot from an Encrypted partition. I want to place the kernel and initramfs/initrd in an encrypted boot partition.

I use grub-legacy but it can not find the kernel on such a boot partition.

Are there any boot-loaders with such an ability?

Try grub2. It should support booting from an encrypted partition.

As per the [link]gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html , grub can not read the files from the encrypted Partition. –  SHW Aug 24 '11 at 7:20
