Note that if you can't or don't want to set a HD password, enable the BIOS user password and you'll be prompted only once.

I use encfs under Ubuntu, which allows me to encrypt a folder in my home directory and mount it so I can access it from my desktop. It is fairly easy to implement and use.
sudo apt-get install encfs fuse-utils gtk-led-askpass sudo modprobe fuse sudo adduser <your username> fuse mkdir ~/encrypted mkdir ~/temp_encr encfs /home/<your username>/encrypted /home/<your username>/temp_encr
Next I setup a shell script and I place it in "System | Preferences | Sessions", so it runs every time I log in and asks me for a password, then mounts the encrypted folder for me if the password is correct.
#!/bin/sh gtk-led-askpass | encfs /home/<your username>/encrypted /home/<your username>/temp_encr
