I will be using the drive with windows (inc Vista) and Linux so it will have to be compatible.

You can encrypt harddrive from Linux using cryptsetup and luks extension. Google for guides on creating the encrypted partition on your harddrive. Once you have encryption on the drive, you can natively use the drive in Linux and use FreeOTFE (freeotfe.org, i think) to mount drives in windows.
