I have a vpn setup to get remote access to the server. But I'd like to map a drive to another workstation on the network, but it can't seem to see it when I'm on the vpn (can it only see the server).

It should be able to see anything on the network once you are into VPN.  The only issue I remember with mapped drives I thought was specific to my setup but it may work for you as well.  Before I was able to get users to map drives to servers/workstations on the network I had to add entries for those servers in the lmhosts file in the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc directory.  or C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc.  Depends on your OS.

depends on what VPN device you are using.  VPNs allow you access to the LAN, but with some limitations.  On the Cisco VPN devices, you can set fiewall setting so that your VPN users can only perform certian actions or see specified subnets.  

What hardware are you using?

It just comes in over a netopia router that then is redirected to the server.

there should be some firwall or NAT setting on the VPN device that will let you indicate what servers the VPN users can see.  See if you can find these setting and configure them properly.  With no configuration, it probably can only see the VPN server.
