When backing up my laptop, the technique I use most often is to back it up to an encrypted disk partition.  I do this because I don't have to control access to the backup media.  Sometimes this takes the form of a USB hard drive I use for other things.  Sometimes it's a remote file store not under my exclusive control (like the DreamHost 50G backup account).  Using a large file holding an encrypted filesystem image, I can let my backups live anywhere.

I have come up with a standard, scripted method of using these encrypted filesystem files.  See the comments in the script below for more information on how to initiate the filesystem and use the script.  Note the script is attached below for your downloading convenience...
