Connecting 2 sites

I have a windows 2000 AD Domain set up with a child domain.  The child domain moved to a remote office and we are going to get cable access for that office.  I'd like to set up a VPN session between the two sites.

Site #1 has 3 DC's behind a PIX 515e firewall.
Site #2 has a Windows 2003 domain controller {global catalog included}.

What is the best way to setup and configure the 2 sites?? RRAS with a VPN tunnel?  Does anyone have any good links to follow?

Notes:
Site #2 would like to access the Internet through our site [so we can monitor] as well as access an Exchange server.
there are only 2-3 users at site #2.   I will backup one very small data directory nightly as well.

Any suggestions are VERY WELCOME!!

Thanks

did you have fix IP-Adresses on both sides, so that you can open a VPN tunnel from both ends?
i think it will be the best to rent a fix connection (maybe 2Mbit up- and down) and connect the sides with an router (depending on the type of connection)

Sorry - I have a fixed IP Address on both ends.

If you have a link which outlines the process that would be a help.  I've tried to find one {I know it's there} but can't seem to find a good article...
