Connecting two peer to peer network

I need to connect two peer to peer network.
One network has a shared ADSL connection with a USB modem (dynamic IP).
The other network has a shared ADSL connection with an ALCATEL Speed Touch Pro router (static IP).
The best solution is to make a single network using a VPN connection.
Can someone give me an operative response (with clear explanation of the operation)?

P.S. the solution has to be software only (we cannot alter the hardware).

if you have a linux box, you might use FreeS/WAN 1.9 from http://www.freeswan.org.
It uses IPSEC and allows also Win2K as VPN partner.

best and easyst would be a linux box on each net, but you may use only one and a w2k server on the other (did test this, just with a win2k road warrior, but should work too).
