You can download IPsec at http://www.freeswan.org/. There's RPMs for
RedHat 8.0, and you'll not need to rebuild your kernel.
2 - CIPE
CIPE comes with Redhat linux. It's very easy to configure.
(Howto on CIPE with Masquerade).

Point to point tunneled protocol. You can Install a PPTP server on your
linux, and from home you can create a new DialUp connection using VPN
Adapter (with microsoft windows), or just download a PPTP client for
4 - SSH

Suggestions and tips are welcome.
