I think it is important to protect your privacy and the work you do for your 
boss on his pc. So I encrypted my system when I installed Breezy Badger 
according to the wiki page:


No Dapper Drake is out, and I want to upgrade to it. But I have a problem. 
The /etc  directory is not encrypted and is used when (a) the system starts 
up with a correct password and (b) when you start up without the passwd (this 
is used by my kids for playing games eg)

If I upgrade from the encrypted system, than the package database will shift 
to DD system. If one of my kids boots up (without the passwd) for playing a 
game, I suppose the system will have problems, since partly it is DD and 
partly BB. 

How to overcome these problems??
Any suggestions that do not need a complete reinstall??
