Hi Johan,

Please, please trim your replies. (And Tim and Hans and ...).
We are programmers, our typing skills are generally not too

This is the sort of installation that would greatly benefit
from encrypted disk volumes. Not only can the database be
mounted on the encrypted volume but so can most of their
other private information. Encrypted volumes can solve
multiple problems in one go, and the encryption offered by
these sorts of products is very good.

Some excellent examples can be found at:
