Go there...

The Fedora 13 rpmfusion nonfree Repo also has realcrypt which is based on Truecrypt.

Based on TrueCrypt, freely available at
realcrypt is mainly just a rebrand to allow for modifications to take place, functionality remains all the same.
Main Features:
* Creates a virtual encrypted disk within a file and mounts it as a real disk.
* Encrypts an entire hard disk partition or a storage device such as USB flash drive.
* Encryption is automatic, real-time (on-the-fly) and transparent.
* Provides two levels of plausible deniability, in case an adversary forces you to reveal the password: 1) Hidden volume (steganography). 2) No RealCrypt volume can be identified (volumes cannot be distinguished from random data).
* Encryption algorithms: AES-256, Blowfish (448-bit key), CAST5, Serpent, Triple DES, and Twofish. Mode of operation: LRW (CBC supported as legacy).

I'm trying it out today...
