    Question Alternate CD LVM Encryption Install


    Hi, I'm somewhat new to Linux, but I do have a little experience. I've decided on using one of the *buntus as my distro of choice.

    I have Vista installed on my first partition, and I want to install *buntu on my second partition, which is approximately 100 gigs in size. The problem is that when I go to install, the only option for LVM Encrypted is to use the entire disk, which would wipe out my Vista system and my third partitions.

    Is there a way to install an *buntu LVM Encrypted system on just it's own partitions and leave my other two alone, and if so, how?

    Have you created unpartitioned/free space for Ubuntu?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Creating and formating partitions is part of the install, therefore it's not necessary to do before hand, so that's not the issue at all. This is a very specific install issue related to the Alternate CD installer only.
