We have the Norton Anti Virus corporate edition installed in one server,
in the main office.  We tried deploying it to our remote sites
using VPN, and these remote sites have different subnets.  We can see
the see the server thru netbios from remote workstations, and vice versa,
but we are unable to connect. How do we resolve this without using a DNS server?

Another option for you is to create a simple HOStS file and upload it to all the clients on the remote site.  The HOSTS file need only have one entry to map the name of the server to the IP address.  That way, you can still configure it as though DNS were resolving.  This is assuming you can ping the server, of course.  You need to know the IP address of the server.  If you need to know how to create a HOSTS file, you can look at the link below, assuming you have 2000 or XP.
