I have set up a BEFVP41 before, only for testing purposes.  This would
work (though I found it to be pretty flaky no matter what I connected
it to, m0n0wall or other IPsec devices), if you had a static IP on the
Linksys side.  With an IP that changes every 24 hours, this isn't
feasible with m0n0wall.
