Need clarification on CSS and BitLocker separate/together etc.

2008-06-07, 14:04 PM
I am confused about the roll of Client Security Solution (CSS) and BitLocker for these machines:

Thinkpad T60p Vista 64
Thinkcentre A55 Vista 64
Thinkpad T43p Vista 32
Thinkpad T21 XP SP3

  1. Should I install both?
  2. If both are install, since both use the TPM will the password be the same or will the TPM store them separately?
  3. Does CSS encrypt the entier hard drive?
  4. Does CSS allow encrypting specific files and folders?
  5. Is CSS necessary to use the fingerprint reader for secure log on?
I have tried to find the answers to these questions on both the Lenovo and MS web sites without success.
