I have been looking around for a while, too, lately and found FreeOTFE
for the Windows side:
It works with LUKS (my biggest test so far is mirroring a 200GB disk to
another one, one unencrypted, the other one crypted with AES 256, diff
-r tells me the copies are identical) and the docs say it also works
with cryptoloop and dm-crypt. LUKS is my favourite solution because I
get such a nice dialog asking for a password when plugging in the
drive :) (yes, I am on Gnome).
That said, I'd like to have TrueCrypt, too, at least on the DVD, because
Knoppix is my IT Swiss Army Knife. I understand that the license stuff
needs to be solved.
