This isn't urgent for anyone but you; we volunteer our time to try to help folks.

Have you tried looking this up on Google, if it's urgent? A brief search turns up:

http://linas.org/linux/vpn.html
http://www.jacco2.dds.nl/networking/freeswan-l2tp.html
http://www.linux-sec.net/VPN/

And there are others.
