VPN over domain question

I have a client that has a VPN connection Pix to Pix solution. They have business at two sites.

The Ip adress at the main office is in the range and at the branch office the ip range is range.

The scenario is like this.

The branch office is part off a diffrent domain and has an old nt 4.0 server. The main office has a win2003 server.

How can we make this one big happy family? :-) Can the pix to pix solution work when both networks has range addresses?  
How do we join the domain over the VPN?  Will the vpn solution have enough power to run applications over the vpn link.
The adsl line at the main office is 2048/512. There is only 8 users at the branch office.  

Inupt please.

Yes, you can have a domain over the VPN link, you would treat it the same as having a normal WAN link. You need SEPERATE subnets at either end. It depends what applications you want to run over the link. I owuldn't do file sharing over the link (have all files locally). You could run Terminal Services over the link happily if you wanted to use the server in the main office only.

if you can run SAP over a routed IP network, then it should run fine over the link as long as it's nadwidth requirements aren't too high.
