Hi guys.

Is there any way AT ALL to get full disk encryption on a PowerPC Mac for the system boot drive?

I have a dual 1.8GHz G5 running 10.5.8. Using Filevault at the moment, but it sucks (as it only protects the home folder.) Taking a performance hit from FDE is not an issue for me. All the software I can find (PGP, Checkpoint) is Intel-only.

What about hardware encryption, like a hardware-encrypted SATA hard disk? Anybody got experience or any links to one of those being used in a PowerPC Mac?
