most if not all linux distros use cryptsetup to manage hard drive encryption. If you use linux and setup the system to encrypt root or home partition, then chances are, you are using cryptsetup.
cryptsetup is a command line tool and TrueCrypt had it at an advantage here because TrueCrypt also provided a GUI.
There is a project at http://code.google.com/p/zulucrypt/ that gives a simple to use,Qt based GUI to cryptsetup and it is now possible to click through cryptsetup features.
zuluCrypt is feature comparable to TrueCrypt and a better choice on linux(IMHO) since zuluCrypt, using cryptsetup as a backend, uses crypto infrastructure that lives inside the linux kernel.
