Just an FYI, unless you specifically want to stay away from
problematic licences (i.e. Fedora) but don't have a problem using RPM
Fusion, you can install RealCrypt. It's IS TruCrypt just re-branded.

If I remember correctly it's not that TrueCrypt is non-free, but that
the license is incompatible with Fedora and upstream was not willing
to budge on that so it was re-branded instead.
