Description of problem:
The Installation Guide appears to be written for newbies. So I was very pleased when I found App.C of the Installation Guide addressing an issue I wanted, ie to encrypt USB memory sticks using LUKS.
Having struggled with the intricacies listed in App. C I realised that 'Disk Utility' surely gives a much simpler route to this goal:
unmount the memory stick
Format the Volume
tick the Encryption box
give a passphrase and its all done!
Add the bonus that 'Disk Utility' also makes it harder to select the wrong drive and annihilate that which one dearly doesn't want annihilated.
The detailed explaination of LUKS in App. C is highly commendable but shouldn't there be at least a mention of the simpler 'Disk Utility' route, ['Disk Utility' being part of the Fedora installed software,] before slogging down the App. C route.

Steps to Reproduce:
Thanks for pointing this out. At the beginning of appendix C.4 in the F16 version of the guide, I've directed users to Disk Utility as an alternative.

Removing myself for these bug components as I'm either no longer involved in that aspect of the project, or no longer care to watch this particular bug. Sorry if you are caught in a maelstrom of bug changes as a result!
