Do I have to employ 2 network cards to use Microsoft VPN on a W2K3 server. Does the server actually have to route? If you get the firewall setup properly and point to the W2K3 server as the VPN target, why is a routing protocol needed?

To answer your main question, no, it is not required to be multi-homed.  I have this set up at two small businesses and they just have one server with one NIC.  The firewall has the appropriate ports forwarded to the server and it works like a charm.
