im having a little trouble with this "challenge" my buddy gave me, he uses red hat (2.6 kernel) and the whole hard drive is encrypted except /boot/, which i could find out with backtrack by opening up the hard drive.. my question is what are the steps one would go through to get root on this machine, or some kind of trick to decrypt the hard drive, and view its noob here on encryption but i thought i could find an experienced user here in the specialist section
