Newbie here trying to get Openswan working on a RHEL 3 box.  Does the
2.3.0 RPM available at
http://www.openswan.com/download/binaries/rhel/3/i386/ apply to a
specific kernel?  I am running 2.4.21-27.0.2.EL.

After installing the RPM and running ipsec verify I get the following:

[root at loggerhead root]# ipsec verify
Checking your system to see if IPsec got installed and started
Version check and ipsec on-path
Linux Openswan U2.3.0/K(no kernel code presently loaded)
Checking for IPsec support in kernel
Checking for RSA private key (/etc/ipsec.secrets)
Checking that pluto is running
whack: Pluto is not running (no "/var/run/pluto.ctl")
Two or more interfaces found, checking IP forwarding
whack: Pluto is not running (no "/var/run/pluto.ctl")
Checking for 'ip' command
Checking for 'iptables' command
