This looks pretty good. The first diagram has fonts which are a little 
hard to read, but on the whole a good tute.

I'll (hopefully) be trying to see if I can somehow get VPN 
functionality over this. I'm thinking about tunneling PPTP over ssh. 
That way, we get encryption that we *know* works (PPTP encryption has 
proved constantly problematic) and a protocol that we *know* windows 
understands. Also, the configuration should be slightly more sane than 

That is, unless someone has been able to get pure ppp over ssh going 
with windows clients....
