This can be done, but it is a fiddly job (14 multipart steps) and requires
static IPs at both ends of the tunnel.

I have seen two guides for this, one came with SmoothTunnel (blush, how much
did we pay for that?!), the other was written by Tim Higgins on
SmallNetBuilder.com (now Tom's Networking, part of TomsHardware.com).

ProblemSolver: WinXP's IPsec client really can work!  

www.tomshardware.com appears to be down at the momment.
