FreeSwan on slackware 9.1

I was wondering if anyone has specific slackware 9.1 instructions fpr freeSwan.
I tried following the online one however some files are not where they are
suppose to be and I cannot seem to get the verify to find and RSA
Should I uninstall Freeswan and go to Openswan?
any help or direction would be appreciated.

I've managed to get OpenSwan running on Slackware 10. I think FreeSwan is showing it's age due to lack of maintenance. The documentation is not much better for OpenSwan. One tricky part is poking holes in the right place for your firewall. I found Shorewall very well documented and well suited for OpenSwan.
