Well, I've been using the Coyote router project stuff and it has a configurator
that builds the initial floppy after asking a few questions.  After it's
running, you can tweak some of the stuff from the 'lrcfg' program that's there
when you log in as root.  I think that the linux router project stuff has a
configuration tool, too.  If you log in to the router as 'root', what do you

By the way, I have a customer with two LRP boxes running a VPN between them. 
The reason that I can't remember how to configure them is because I haven't had
to touch them since they were installed many months ago :-)
