A VPN connection to Win2k3

Win2k3 can handle VPN connections (server at my work) and i would like to know how to setup a connection from a linux machine to a Windows VPN Server (if posible)

I looked at vpn clients but the default vpn clients for linux doesn't support windows vpn connections.

Does anyone knows a vpn client?

But here is something I found openVPN

Check out openswan, strongswan, freeswan, or openvpn. All of those are linux vpn clients.
