Backup your .bitcoin folder, delete it, and mount your truecrypt drive in .bitcoin
Then put all the files of your .bitcoin backup in the truecrypt drive

Or use -datadir bitcoin flag

As jackjack said, -datadir=

You might also use symlink (or if windows, see http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2730.msg306129#msg306129 )
