With l2tpd and the 2.6 kernels of some distributions, yes.
L2tpd requires legacy PTYs which is not in FC2, FC3 and
Mandrake 10.1. So an option is to switch to rp-l2tp.

No. There are other options as well. You could enable legacy
PTYs support and recompile the kernel included with your
distribution. Or, if you like programming, you could add
support for the new PTY style to l2tpd.
