[VPN] Network Design for security.

Hello. Recently my network was hacked, and I'm planning on rebuilding my
network (they hacked an outdated ftp server that I was unaware was
running). I'm not sure if this should really be going on this mailing
list, but I was wondering if anyone would know a decent network design
that would implement great security.
My home LAN currently consists of a cisco 2507 router (11.2 IOS, soon to
upgrade IOS) linksys router (four port). A laptop running slackware, a box
running win98, and two other boxes running linux (one box is in a serious
need for an upgrade, but I don't have the funds to do it yet). My one box
has three NIC cards in it as well, so it could be used as a router.
I was just curious if anyone has a good idea for a network design that I
could implement for maximum security. I'm currently somewhat clueless when
it comes to networks. I'd also like to know where I should be placing the
VPN, and wether or not I should be using PoPToP or FreeS/WAN.
Any ideas or comments would be appreciated!
