One thought is to tunnel all of your traffic over the ssh connection.
Dose vnc give you a tcp-ip route to your work network?  If so, you could
set your default route on your home machine to be the ip address of your
work machine and let it route you to the internet.  I don't know how you
do this in MS but the RH machine at work should just need to be configured
to forward packets (which I can't remember how to do either!..).
