Thanks for the reply, Brian, I have similar questions and some 
clarification.  I'm trying to use non-commercial software, so my ideal 
setup would be:

VPN server| <--IPSEC--> | Mac using built-in Apple VPN client

on the VPN server side, I'd heard that isakmp was the simplest wrt setup 
effort.  I'm willing to look at freeswan or racoon.  I've heard freeswan 
is no fun.
