        You can put CIPE on the same systems that you are doing the linux
masq on, in fact that is the preferable way to do it.

        Having dynamic IP addresses on one end of a CIPE connection is not a
big problem; when your home CIPE talks to the work CIPE, work's CIPE sees
that the IP address changed and remembers that.  There are tricks to making
a CIPE connection where both ends have dynamic IP addresses work, but that
doesn't seem to be what you need.

        Your ip-up script on each side should bring up a route to the other
private network via the CIPE link (unless you are using some sort of routing
protocol, and in that case you need to let that software know that a new
interface was brought up).  There are examples in the default ip-up script.

        In regards to RH7.1 and compiling; I'll let others answer that part.
