I did an install of Vista Build 5536 (pre-RC1) on my Gateway M275 Tablet 
yesterday, and then installed the Cisco Beta client on that system.  
Installation went smoothly, and I am able to establish a VPN 
connection.  Nice to see that something works for a change.

The "start VPN client before logon" option that I find useful on 
occasion is not yet available in this build.  Hopefully Cisco will slip 
that feature back in before Vista goes "gold'.
