FC9 and Openswan - 1st time questions

Hi folks.

I've just set up two FC9 boxes and yum installed openswan.

I've followed the instructions from the wiki for setting up the roadwarrior 
setup, including creating newhostkeys, creating /etc/ipsec.d/road.conf by 
cut/paste'ing the code from the wiki page and changing IP addresses and keys 
as appropriate.

When I then restarted the ipsec services and ran ipsec auto --up road all 
looked fine.

However, I have two questions.

1) with previous (non-openswan) VPN's I've ended up with virtual net devices 
(e.g.ppp0) representing both ends of the link which I can then use for IP 
routing. This time I don't have any new net devices. Is this right? and if 
so, how do I now do routing?

2) I saw the command ipsec verify and got the following output.  What do the 
failures mean, and how do I fix them?

[root groucho ~]# ipsec verify
Checking your system to see if IPsec got installed and started correctly:
Version check and ipsec on-path                                 [OK]
Linux Openswan U2.6.19/K2.6.27.9-73.fc9.i686 (netkey)
Checking for IPsec support in kernel                            [OK]

  Please disable /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/*/send_redirects
  or NETKEY will cause the sending of bogus ICMP redirects!
