Keeping proxy on in ISA but turning off firewall

Hello;
I have a dilemma which I'm not sure there is answer to, but I'll ask anyway.  I've seen a ton of topics on turning off the web proxy capabilities in ISA, but I want to know if there is a way to just keep my ISA box as a web proxy while using another appliance as the firewall for my LAN.
Originally, the ISA server was the SGW and proxy for the LAN I am working on, but I have since switched the gateway over to a hardware firewall.  The problem is that now I have two points of access to the network.  The ISA server is handling all incoming HTTP requests to our server as well as all mail requests, and the hardware firewall is handling everything else.  I want to turn off everything on the ISA server, and just use it as a web-proxy server.  How would I go about doing this?

Thank you for your help.

Funny thing, right after I posted the question...after months of searching for something..., I came upon the services section and saw it the answer in front of my face.  It always happens that way, doesn't it?

I agree that it is a good firewall, but I like its proxy abilities better than its firewall capabilities.

Thanks again for your prompt response.
