Is there any way so that i can use my smart card certificates to encypt/decrypt my operating system drive in Windows 7?.

Which certificate templates are used for bitlocker encryption? Can i used my Windows Server 2003 for issuing certificates (bitlocker supported) to smart cards? If not what changes are required in Windows Server 2003?

My Windows 7 OS is not compatible with TPM. Is i have to update my hardware to make my Windows 7 OS compatible with TPM?
