Hi, I use my laptop (Ubuntu) to connect to a windows domain/pptp vpn. All I did was make sure
network-manager-openvpn
network-manager-vpnc
network-manager-pptp
were all installed, then use the network manager to configure a new VPN (right click, VPN->Configure). It was all pretty intuitive. I don't have the domain append set up, so I have to add '.domain.com' to all the host names.
