To use KLIPS wouldn't we have to build a new kernel without the IPSEC
stuff built in.
What is NETKEY?...

I'm using FC3 with 2.6.10-1.766 kernel.  I couldn't get KLIPS to work
  beyond the most superficial definition of "work".  I had to revert to
  NETKEY, which has its own problems--like you can only do one
  cycle of connection up/down, between restarts of OpenSwan. [The EAGAIN
  problem we were discussing].
