Probably the crypttab errors you are getting are due to the support not
being there in debian yet.

Will appreciate if you could do me a favor,i have a project at[1] .It does
support opening truecrypt system volume but i have not tested the
functionality because i have no system volume to test.

If it works,you could use the project to open your truecrypt system and
other encrypted volumes you may have the project support.
