I'd recommend OpenVPN as /the/ VPN to use with a Linux VPN server...    
but, web based?   its SSL based.    the only 'web based' stuff I'm aware 
of is when the VPN client is embedded in a client side web 'object' like 
ActiveX, the VPN itself isn't actually webbased, it just APPEARS that 
way to the user.

OpenVPN has a nice unobtrusive openvpnGUI client you can distribte to 
your Windows users, along with the appropriate PKI keys.   The specifics 
of how you want to do your PKI key management are left up to the system 
administrator as an exercise, but it uses OpenSSL keys, so anyone 
familiar with those should have no problems.
