Openvpn Fedora tutorial?



Is there a good tutorial for openvpn under Fedora?
I've followed the instructions at
<http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=595436>
but they seem to have made things worse rather than better.

When I restart openvpn on my desktop (in another country)
I see in /var/log/messages
------------------------------------

------------------------------------
while when I restart openvpn on my laptop I see
------------------------------------

------------------------------------

Ifconfig shows a tun0 device on my desktop:
------------------------------------
tun0      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr
00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
          inet addr:192.168.5.1  P-t-P:192.168.5.2  Mask:255.255.255.255
------------------------------------
but there is no tun? device on my laptop.
[There was a tun0 device before I followed the advice mentioned above.]

Is there an openvpn doctor in the house?
All advice and suggestions gratefully received.
