Looks OK, as far as I could see.

I would suggest changing the "conn L2TP-PSK-INTERNAL" though,
because currently both left= and right= are on the same internal
network. If you move one of your internal Windows clients to the network (for testing purposes) you can comment out
the  "conn L2TP-PSK-INTERNAL". The server will not have to use
NAT then, so the connection should work.

That's actually a good strategy. Start with the common case,
get quick results and then gradually add complexity.

If the server is NATed, yes. Alternatively, you can get FC5's
Openswan 2.4.4 SRPM and add the patch for NATed servers yourself.

Hm, better not get former wifes involved. Always add complexity
later :-).
