And is there an easy program or way of doing this and if so, how. Thanks in advance. If I was really saavy I wouldn't be asking this question, so keep the response on a third grader level.

TrueCrypt - Free Open-Source On-The-Fly Disk Encryption Software for Windows 7/Vista/XP, Mac OS X and Linux works pretty good
