So if I want to encrypt my whole HDD with e.g.: LUKS (are there any better solutions? - e.g.: in performance?) then I have to download&burn a "ubuntu-11.04-alternate-amd64.iso" CD. That's ok, I understand.

The Question: Are there any minimal ISO's (like the Debian netinstall CD) *WITH LUKS support?

So that I just have to download an ISO that weights a couple of MByte's and install it using LUKS so that I could have a fully encrypted HDD?

maybe installing on encrypted LVM ( it is option when youre formatting drives in minimal iso ) or will work for you... – Denwerko May 29 '11 at 20:50

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Anwar Shah Aug 31 '12 at 11:45
