Thanks Nix

Diffie Hellman is a way of building keys. IKE is a way of exchanging them.

http://rr.sans.org/encryption/algorithm.php  does a decent job
of explaining the relationship between IKE and Diffie Hellman.

A  google  search for:  ike "diffie hellman" faq key exchange
also turned up a number of good resources.
