How to VPN to work and Remote a 2k3 server under FC3

I have found VNC rpms on rpm find dot net. I have installed a ISpec VPN client as well. Niether seem to work well.
Here is the deal I have changed to all Linux on my desktop at home and my mobile I use for work. I need to be able to VPN a clients PIX or Watchgaurd (or whatever) and remote control a windows box from any internet connection.
So for example I am sitting in a starbucks hacking out some Perl (currently my new hobby) and my pager goes off. I am at a hotspot so I need to get a VPN to client A and log into there server to reboot the dam thing for the 800th time because MS SQL blows up and the client site is down.

I am sure I will figure this out on my own given amble amounts of time. However if there is a solution to this problem or a how to that some one has already discovered I would be greatly in your debt if you shared this knowledge with me.

Oh one more thing I am looking for a nice open source solution to running a virtual machine on my fedora install so I can load xp into it. Thats is only for my home machine and to facilitate the use of the digital camera I purchased for $900 bucks and dont care to replace so I can use it on my new OS.

Thanks for all the Help
