Foolproof laptop encryption

I am looking for a simple foolproof laptop encryption method. It must run under Win 98, Win 2000 and Win XP. There are thousands of products out there so any advice would be welcome.

My advice is to use PGP. In the interests of full disclosure, I used to be the CTO there. I think it's a fine product. Yes, I know Network Associates has put it into limbo. It will come out of limbo. You can still find versions of it stores or on the Web. Last week, it was the #4 best selling software product on Amazon. Not bad for something in limbo.
