Encrypted drive...does it mean encrypted files?

I installed F12KDE a week ago, and in the process, I elected to encrypt my /root, /swap, and /home drives. When I installed I had the intention of installing VMware player (which I have done), and running WinVista as a virtual machine. I have now created the virtual drive, and I would like to install the virtual machine, but it won't let me. I think it is because it is encrypted. Could someone confirm this please? If that is the case, what do I do now? Can I unencrypt a folder's contents (i.e.--vmware) so that the WinVista installation can proceed?
