So you want to setup a VPN server at home or create a VPN tunnel to a work VPN server?

If its the former see these...

OpenVPN is also an alternative and certainly more secure...

Hi

Al gave you some very useful info, however you have to be more specific in what you want to do.

Many times people have misconceptions about the capacity to connect to the Internet via another computer and while using VPN connection.

VPN is a security measure and Not a Magic way to overcome connection's limitation.

To just connect locally via a Host computer you have to use ICS, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Using-ICS-Internet-Connection-Sharing
