TrueCrypt usage: is it possible to have 1 password unlock 2 volumes?

I have been asked by a relative to encrypt both a USB pen & a Hard-disk folder. My immediate thaught was to use Truecrypt being that its free and relativly decent!

"TrueCrypt has an option to cache the encryption password. If you check it when entering the first password, TrueCrypt will try to use it for future volumes.

For example, my login script looks kinda like this: (converted from Python)

truecrypt /volume foo.tc /letter p /auto /quit /cache y
truecrypt /volume bar.tc /letter q /auto /quit
truecrypt /wipecache /silent /quit background"
