Errors in July Article

There is an error in your July article entitled “Encrypted File Systems” by Bear Giles. On page 67, in the first column the following commands appear:

mount /dev/fd0 /mnt -text2,loop,encryption=idea
mount /dev/fd0 /mnt -text2,loop,encryption=des

They should read:

mount /dev/fd0 /mnt -text2 -o loop,encryption=idea
mount /dev/fd0 /mnt -text2 -o loop,encryption=des
That's it. You people do a great job. Keep it up.
