Hi,
  I have a Windows 2000 server, which is to be set up as a VPN server.  I have a high-speed DSL connection with static IP address. Can someone help me?

Check this page out http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/network/vpn/microsoft/win2k/index.xml?style=printable I think it has the information you require.
The tricky part is opening up all the necessary ports on your router.

You need to enable the following ports:

  PORT 135 (TCP or UDP) for the Remote Procedure Call
  PORT 137 (UDP) for the NetBIOS Name Service.
  PORT 138 (UDP) for NetBIOS datagram (Browsing).
  PORT 139 (TCP) for NetBIOS session (NET USE).
  PORT (TCP) 1723 for PPTP.
  IP PROTOCOL 47 (GRE)
