Hi Lisi,

I've done TDE installs on top of fresh Squeeze installs loads of times 
without problem. It's not clear to me from your post exactly what 
problems you're experiencing but if you let me know maybe I can help.

I'll do a fresh squeeze install now, followed by a TDE install just to 
confirm it works here. i386 or x86_64?

Please excuse me if I'm grabbing at the wrong end of the stick here or 
missing something.

Any question is easy if you know the answer!
