M$'s EFS won't allow you to encrypt system files, but just about anything else you want to. To encrypt the clients connecting to the server you can use SSL for webpages and IPSec for other types. The SeaGate Momentus laptop drives will be fully encrypted, including system files and the page file:

You can use PGP, it's no different than most 3rd parties, it's an industry standard, it also offers FDE (or as they call it whole disk encryption)
