If the features of NETKEY are sufficient for what you want to do stick
with it as its the easier way to do. Should work with all 2.6-kernels,
but >2.6.15 is recommended.

KLIPS using the latest stable release of OpenSwan 2.4.7 works with kernel
2.6.18, but i havent seen success-reports with kernel 2.6.19 so far. Tried
with the latest cvs-version yesterday, also hitting problems, so one
should stick with 2.6.18 when using KLIPS for now.

If your not sure if you need KLIPS you probably dont need it ;)
