How to install TrueCrypt 4.3a on Fedora 7

We are going to compile TrueCrypt from source so first grab TrueCrypt's source code.

Extract the source code and navigate to the Linux folder

tar xfz truecrypt-4.3a-source-code.tar.gz
cd truecrypt-4.3a-source-code
cd Linux

Truecrypt needs to compile a kernel module during the build process. Unfortunately the kernel headers included with Fedora 7 (in the kernel-devel package) are missing the dm.h header file which is needed for compiling the kernel module.
