Which Distro Comes with PPTP included?

I have RedHat 8.0. The VPN client from there uses cipe ( from the Internet Dial Up Wizard).

I am looking for a similiar solution like that RedHat 8 GUI/Wizard based VPN, but for pptp instead. Which distro would have that? Or, at least which distro would be PPTP friendly? That is less dependencies and less kernel recompiles. I am a newbie, and really dread these task. Thanks in advaned.

I am not sure.... I know you can get really good PPTP instructions from

If you want to find out which distro comes with it included....I suggest going to like
and looking at the RPMS in each distro to see if any have "pptp-linux"

Good luck,
