I am setting up putty 0.54 to use a proxy server so when I connect up to my  
host it will display the proxy ip as the last connection and not my real
one. the question is will everything from my computer to the host computer
still be encrypted or will it be plain text from my computer to the proxy
and encrypted from there to the host?

Quoted text here. Click to load it

All of the SSH traffic is encrypted between your client and SSH server,
including client->proxy.

The proxy connect command and the *start* of the SSH protocol are always
plain text, so an observer can determine that you're using SSH and what
you're connecting to, but not much other than that.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
