Hi, if I'm running bitcoin client from inside a truecrypt drive how do i get it to run the .bitcoin/database on the truecrypt drive and not on my home folder?

Thanks
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

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 )
