Ah, the ultimate in a sense of false security. When will people realize that
encryption only buys you time? Besides, who says that your passphrases
aren't still in RAM (see cold boot attacks)?

I use truecrypt to encrypt my full hard drive which includes the
bootloader. I must enter a password on boot for the OS to load. Without
the password, you get no access to the drive. Additionally, if the drive is
removed, it can not be mounted except using Truecrypt software, where again
you need the password.
The password consists of more than 10 characters, contains alpha, numeric
and special characters mixed.
Additionally, I use a screen lock with password unlock.
