VPN and a Web Browser

I have a W2K LAN with an ISA Server 2000 Firewall/Router providing access to the Internet. - We are able to Browse the Internet without any problems.
I want to enable our ISA Server as a VPN Server as well so we can have dial-in access to our LAN. I also want to be able to continue to browse the Internet from the work-stations  on our LAN.
For me, to get what appeared to be a simple process going, has been a long and messy one so I will keep it short and leave out all of the machinations.
To keep life simple, I have now disabled the ISA Firewall Service temporarily and set up a standard RRAS Server. This is working fine. (But of course - no firewall - gulp!)
When I configure RRAS to enable it as a VPN Server, we can no longer browse the Internet. It seems I can have one or the other (a VPN Server or a Web Access Server) and I have been unable to find any help on enabling both.
I feel sure this must be simple enough to accomplish if one knows what one is doing. (Ah - there's the problem!) I am looking for help to configure RRAS to enable our Web Access Server to also be a VPN Server while maintaining the functionality of both.
Thanking you in anticipation!

Don't use the VPN setup option in the RRAS setup wizard

Open the RRAS control console
Right click to Disable the server -->Right click to Configure and enable a new server-->Next-->Manually create a new server  -->Finish -->Do not start the service at this time

This a blank RRAS installation and RRAS console should be open
Open the properties sheet of your server-->Uncheck Router-->Check Remote -->access server-->IP tab-->Check Enable IP routing--> Check Allow IP-based remote access--> Select IP address assignment to reflect your network

Setup a rule in your firewall to port 1723 traffic to the VPN server.
