Sure, get yourself a perimeter VPN concentrator and let them create the tunnel to that, then they will have access to the 98 machine within your LAN..  I prefer Cisco (501 Pix or a 3000 Concentrator) but that could be too expensive for your solution..

You could try saving some $ by going Linksys:

The Virtual Private Network (VPN) capability creates encrypted "tunnels" through the Internet, allowing up to 30 remote office or traveling users to securely connect into your office network from off-site. Users connecting through a VPN tunnel are attached to your company's network -- with secure access to files, e-mail, and your intranet -- just as if they were in the building. You can also use the VPN capability to allow users on your small office network to securely connect out to a corporate network.
