[Openswan Users] Multiple clients on dynamic IP + server on static IP - how?

Ok, I know this is a silly question but call me stupid - I've not been
able to figure this one out in the last few years.
We've got a moderate setup with ~25 VPN connections:
- Linux server, kernel 2.4.x
- Most client LAN's are hooked using D-Link 808HV / 804HV and 814VUP
Static IP, authentication via PSK
- One Linux client (guess who), kernel 2.6.x
Dynamic IP, authentication via certificate
Now, I'd like to hook up a few employees who are on home DSL/Cable and
as such have dynamic IPs. At the moment we use PPTP for that, which
works. I'd like to use it as a learning exercise though. So I'm looking
at using something like the D-Link 804HV or 814VUP or anything similarly
cheap, because the employees will have to pay them out of their own
pockets IF they want to telecommute.
But I can't for the life of me figure out how to get more than one
dynamic IP successfully hooked into the IPsec VPN with PSK since even
the cheapest IPsec routers out there seem to work ok with PSK. Rather
than boring you with what didn't work I'd like to ask if anyone has any
working server config?
Btw, nevermind the security implications of hooking a home PC into an
office network - I'm aware of that and do already have that solved.
Thanks a lot in advance
