Site-to-Site VPN utilizing DFS-R

I am about to setup a Site-to-Site VPN.  There will be 20 users at this Branch location.  The plan is to setup another domain controller/file server and place it at this branch location.  If I want to utilize DFS to replicate the branch office data from there to our main headquarters to backup, should I invest in 2003 R2 Enterprise or will 2003 R2 Standard work?  There will be approximately 40gb of data at this remote location.  What should the OS requirement for the server I plan to replicate to be?

DFS is the same in both editions as far as i know, standard will be fine. Make sure they are both R2 servers as its the only OS in which DFS actually works!

Will DFS replicated from server 2003 to server 2000 or am I just asking for problems?
