you may want to consider loop-aes instead.  i'll try to avoid a
flame war here, but dm-crypt/luks has some deficiencies  which may
or may not be of concern. if you do use dm-crypt/luks, make sure you
have a recent version. (pref. 2.6.20+).
truecrypt is free and open, and pretty decent, particularly if you
want win32 support.
0. key management is usually more difficult for loop-aes and the keys
(multi-v3) are also larger. that said, the key schedule and key
scrubbing in loop-aes are preferable to the others IMHO.
1. cryptoloop, dm-crypt, bestcrypt, truecrypt, and loop-aes - Why
cryptoloop should not be used.
