[Openswan Users] Need help configuring OpenVPN client

I am new to creating client IPSec tunnels in Linux.  I am running Fedora
14 with
  openswan-2.6.33-1.fc14.i686 and
  NetworkManager-openswan.i686 0:0.8.0-5.20100411git.fc14

I am looking to configured my FC14 box as an IPSEC client to connect to
my office VPN.  I do not know what server the office VPN is using.  All
I know are the specs that they have given me.  I also have a working
example of it running in Windows using TheGreenBow client.

I have been given the following files:
(and password for the key/p12 files)

I know the following settings (from looking at the functinoal TGB client
and someone who has gotten it to work with ipsecuritas in Mac):

Gateway IP
Network Addr/CIDR:
Phase 1:
   - Lifetime 1800
   - DH Group: 1024(2)
   - Encryption: AES 128
   - Authen: SHA-1
   - Exchange: Main

Phase 2:
   - PFS Group: 1024(2)
   - Encryption: AES 128
   - Authen: HMAC SHA-1

NAT-T: force

Can anyone please help me with getting this configuration to work?  I
have attempted to set up the tunnel using the NetworkManager plugin, but
it doesn't seem to have the proper configuration parameters.

Ideally, I'd like to get this working via the NM, but if it has to be
done at command line level, i would be happy with that as well.

Thanks for any help that you can provide!
