Need help with being a vpn client. OpenSWaN maybe?

My new employer let's me get into work using vpn with IPSEC. I assume that 
this means that I can use openswan. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)

What they gave me is an external ip address, a username and a password. It 
goes into a Nortel appliance of some sort.

If this is in fact a job for openswan, can someone please tell me how to 
configure it, how to start it, and what do I do once it's started? I've 
never used a vpn before.
