Changing to FDE drive

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have a lenovo T500, and I am thinking of buying a hitachi drive with Full
Disk Encryption. Does any one know what the swap out will be like. I do not
currently have the FDS disk, and I was wondering what would be involved in
the setup. i.e does the onboard encryptor get the password from the bios,
or does it just ask for a HD password on the intial boot.

I can't see buying one direct from Lenovo when I can get them for 1/4 of
thier asking price.

Any forseeable issues I might run into would be very helpful.
