is it vpn?

you see when i'm using my win xp after i connect to my school wireless network, i still need to run an application (with user name & password) in order connect to the school vpn for student.

however if i run on fedora core 1 after i type in the school url in mozilla, i can get access only to website that are not-vpn-ed.

but i have no problem surfing from public hotspot with mozilla.

also another problem is that i need to log in as root in order to surf the net, i just cannot do so in my user mode.

so how do solve the above 2 problem?
