Actually your documents are 404 man...sorry. What I was saying is that one needs to learn command line before GUI. TrueCrypt is a good tool and really great for automating things, but if you don't understand how it works then your not really that secure.

Did I miss something, did he setup an encrypted volume and forget the password?

I actually used truecrypt in windows before I switched to Linux. I think the GUI offers enough security options without having to know how it actually works or command line stuff. I think a fair knowledge of what encryption is and the different kinds, will suite the average user in deciding on security options.
