That's right Alex, I just need to protect some sensitive stuff of my 
own computer, not to be included in any salable product. In any event, 
I'm Canadian, and DriveCrypt is German so I really couldn't care less 
about US cryptography laws.

I'm still looking out for a cross-platform product (as I mentioned in 
my original post). Unless I find something very soon, I'll be 
purchasing DriveCrypt next week. In the event that my PC laptop is 
stolen, I'll use DriveCrypt on my Mac under VirtualPC to resurrect my 
backed-up protected data.
