Right.  The router I am attempting to connect to is a Linksys BEFSX41, 
which appears to  only do IPSec.  When I had posted before, I was of the 
impression that the settings were for VPN for each protocol, not so, it 
appears to be just passthrough for PPTP and PPPoE, not actual servers.

I am going to try setting up a tunnel using kvpnc as a front end for 
racoon.  If it works, I'll post results here - (and probably the ubuntu 
WPA wiki if the regulars here think I have a decent set of instructions.)
