What is an inexpensive vpm for a small business ?

It will have xp workstations and linux / windows servers.  

I prefer linux or reasonably priced hardware vpn.  Keyfobs are great if they are not too expensive.

For SMB my first recommendation is SonicWall. They are not the cheapest out there but they are a solid product that is simple and intuative to setup and support. Sonicwalls have the flexability of both site to site VPNs along with remote access VPNs.
One of the biggest reasons i preffer SonicWall is their Unified Services which allow you to have a firewall, VPN IDS/IPS allong with anti-virus support all within the same device.
My other suggestins would be Cisco ASA 5505 or check out the Juniper SSG5. Both of those are great but take a little more advanced knowledge to operate and coast a bit more.

I personnally have not worked with Linux based VPNs but i know of several people who run them and have been happy with their setup. Here is an artical that goes over some of the more popular VPN solutions for a linux server.
Im sure some of the more linux focused experts will have more insight into a linux solution.

But if you are looking for something on the cheap then you might consider finding a used cisco PIX or ASA on ebay. I know you can find a PIX 501 for less than $100 right now. With a small network this might be a perfect solution. Just a thought.
