    Hiho

    I came accross a little guide on how to encrypt a whole disk drive with a steganographic system (dm-crypt / LUKS) and I thought I could try it as *buntu and debian are so close to each other...

    The URL is http://www.saout.de/tikiwiki/tiki-index.php?page=EncryptedDeviceUsingLUKS

    Well, I started with it... skipped Step 2 (as I have no clue so far on how to do that) and now I fail at Step 6. I get following error notice:
    So I guess that the (X)ubuntu Feisty 2.6.20-14-generic kernel doesn't have one of the options enabled that is being talked about in Step 2 of the howto.

    So my questions are:

    (1) Am I right with my assumption from that error notice?

    and if so (2) how to I enable those options?
