Hi there...

Is there any easy way to connect to my work 's vpn (XP Server) using my Z and then handle my work 's PC using my Z 's VNC Viewer?

This is a madness ... better get a cheap small old laptop ( as I did - 12.1" 1024x768 fujitsu-siemens p3@600mhz,256mb ) and you will be happy. Z is just not for this.
I haven't used vpn with my Z ever but I have used the rdesktop (RDP) client. It works fine for me, a little small... but it works.
I actually worked on an issue with exhange 2003 over wifi, and the speed was as if I was on a full sized pc. Now when it comes to vpn, you can try vpnc, but I believe it does require some kernel modules to be built for it to function correctly, (sorry I dont know what modules or if they are even built for b3)

Hope this helps

ssh tunnelling might be easier - connect outwards from your work to your zaurus, and add -R to make the zaurus listen on a port and forward that port to a machine inside your work place.

-edit- I re-read the last bit and it wasn't clear
I am using openvpn for connection to my work.

For remote desktop, you have several options, at least in theory:

- remote X protocol (fast and straightforward, but needs fast connection). Tested and works.

- remote X protocol with low bandwidth compression (e. g. lbxproxy). I never tested it, but in theory it can work, if somebody will prepare needed software.

- Remote VNC or rdesktop protocol. I never tested it, but in theory it can work, if somebody will prepare needed software.

- NX protocol (fast even on dial-up). There is no good Open Source solution. There is an proprietary ARM OABI binary from 2002 from Nomachine. I failed to make it working on a modern Zaurus distro.
Tnx for all m8s...
