I may be taking a desktop Ubuntu box that I've put together for my mother [who is now using a very old iMac that is just too slow).

I want to take my Ubuntu laptop with me (running 9.10) and temporarily connect to her wireless network.

What do I need to do, just click the signal bars at top and then click VPN connections and then click to configure (add another) connection? I can add another VPN connection without screwing up my own wireless vpn connection settings can't I ?
