i am well aware that i would have to patch my kernel and re-compile. but what kernel comes preloaded with the MPPE? any advice on installing the PPTP client on a slackware machine. it seems that most tutorials are written for other distros and are not applicable to slackware. i kinda wish the pptp client was preinstalled. i hate to have to recompile the kernel. but i need it just in case i need to log into work. i did notice the linux remote desktop tool works brilliantly for connecting to a windows machine. thanks
