I'm purchasing 2 BEF SX41 Linksys VPN routers and  would like to know if the server, running 98se, should be updated to XP in order to set up a VPN. If not how difficult will things get with the 98se OS? Very small business, 2 computers, using a satelite broadband connection wants to tunnel to home computer that operates under XP and connects through ADSL (SBC). I will be requesting a static IP addresses as soon as I arrive. I have visited the support page at Linksys and not quite sure what to think. Any help or suggestions would be very helpful.

With VPN routers, it does not matter what the OS is. The VPN tunnel is created between the two routers only and as long as both LAN's are on different IP subnets, the transport between sites is invisible to the clients.
