How to use VPN with Poptop?

I've seen many having problem about understanding how to use VPN when you got a vpn-connection through poptop, and so do I.

I can connect from home with Win XP Pro, through a Slackware 8.1 iptables GW using NAT, over internet to my Slackware server public connected to internet at office. And then, now what are I doing? Someone who feels that he is king of VPN could help many users solving out the funderations..

My office slackware server has ip and my home server internal has The XP computer has ip
Is that a problem, that both home and office nets are using networks? My office server serves its internal network with Samba, but from home I can't connect to its services and neither ping it. If I at the XP computer check the box "Use default gateway at remote network" (raw translated from swedish) under TCP/IP propertis for the VPN connection, then I can ping the XP computer from the office server!! but not the other way. I can also list the XP computer shares using smbclient.

The Slackware server at office serves the office network also with internet connection, shared with iptables/NAT but I can't ping the internal computers nor the server from XP computer.
