Software VPN for existing network advice

I've been down the road a few times reading, but the time has come I need to move forward (and of course have it done yesterday).

I have a Fedora machine as a management server, has 3 nic's, a public, private and a management. We have a corporate Juniper firewall, and I need to allow 'road warriors' a solution (linux, xp, vista). Open swan seems a good choice, but I have done alot of reading on their wiki ( but there seems a lot of extra's the client would need to do.

So in a nutshell,
1. Is that the case? The openswan installed via rpm rather easy, ipsec is running, but as I said the doc's are rather limited (in my opinion).

2. Is there something else out there someone can say, I used this, nice web or webmin module for admin, end users, no problem, gave them IP, username and they were done (something to that affect)
