I would like to use GRUB for the boot manager, BUT, I just realized today
that I have been using TrueCrypt in 'Single OS' mode. Maybe it's "muliti OS'
mode would let me switch to GRUB afterwards.

I'll play with all this.

BTW, TrueCrypt begins decrypting BEFORE loading a real  bootmanager, since
part of the decryption program is in the MBR.
