For most of us, the Cisco VPN client is no longer required with Fedora 7.

The new (with F7) openvpn client read my Cisco Profile just fine, and 
works with NetworkManager very well.

In fact, the openvpn client is much better than the Cisco VPN client in 
that the openvpn client allows the local network to still function!  
That is very handy for having a mounted file system functional when on a 
VPN to work.
