Multiple connection VPN on Linux?


Hi All,
before I delve into this complex question, let us first look at the setup and hardware:

1 x Celeron 400 Mhz Machine (96 MB RAM). NO GUI. command-line-only
This machine is running SuSE Linux professional 9.2 (no GUI)
1 x Netgear MR 814 Router
3 x Windows 2000 / Xp clients on the same LAN
1 x Windows XP machine form the outside (external IP)

OK, the task at hand:

I wish to set up this linux machine so that its SOLE PURPOSE (repeat: 1 and only SOUL purpose) is to allow more than one incoming VPN connection. What I wish to acheive is create a VPN network so 3 people form inside the house, and a freind who lives in a different city can all play C& C G ZH. So think of this machine (the linux one) as a "VPN server" so to speak.

As I have mentioned, we do have a router in place, but port-forwarding should not be a problem.

Now, since I do not own a copy of Windows NT Server 4 (which is probably all that machine cna handle in terms of a windows server). is there a Linux Alternative to this?

Essential;ly here is what I am after: I need a FOR DUMMIES (repeat: for DUMMIES) guide from A to Z tp set up a VPN server in linux that can handle MPRE THAN ONE incoming connection.

Gr8 now I look like an idiot that never googles. I have googled till my eyes dropped out of their sockets. I wasn't aware of google/linux. Thanx for the link.
