Sorry, i dont know how. But you already got it?! I ordered mine about 2.5 hours after it was released and they tell me it wont even be shipped for another 4 or 5 days

Ran to the local apple store

I ran to the local apple store in miami. They had them.

I just ordered an additional 1gb ddr 2700 ram. I assume it will make a huge difference in performance from the pidily 256 mb provided

Yeah, they sure hid it well. It took me a week to find it. You have to open up the Internet Connection application (in the application folder) and choose new vpn connection. You then put in the ip address of the vpn concentrator and the username and password.

After you create the PPTP account/connection, it will show up in your network control panel. I would highly recommend that if you are using NAT, that you go to the network CP and add your DNS servers to the PPTP/VPN connection. I found this out when I was able to establish the connection, but since my dns was all proxy'ed through the airport, and my airport was a 10.0.1.0/24 address, I was not able to speak to it. I could, OTOH connect to the dns servers at work just fine once I configured them.

The RAM difference wont be huge, but it will be noticable. As a general rule 1 processor can use 512mb of RAM effectively (more than that is overkill for almost any use). But since the new PMs are dual processor, 1gb of RAM is what you really need for optimum performance
