RRAS VPN through Watchguard

Hello,
I have a Watchguard Firbox 1000 and a RRAS server behind it on the trusted network.  I Installed RRAS and when I configured PPTP it does not allow a NAT.  Originally I was going to use TermServ for a remote solution, however one of our apps will not run on Term Serv so I am left with VPN for remote users.  
I have used MUVPN in the past and it is great to connect to the Firebox, however its pass through using hosts and lmhosts files to do the resolution to get file structures has been less than exemplary.

How to I configure the Firebox to pass the traffic to the RRAS server and get the VPN configured on the clients to simply tunnel in and use the programs on their local machines but use the resources on the server?

Single Domain - 3 DC's - 5 servers total - RRAS server is also Term Services Server and that is all.  All servers are behind firewall on trusted port.  Server OS are all Server 2003 R2 and clients are all XP Pro SP2.

Thank you in advance - the points are for difficulty as I have banged my head against Watchguard VPNs before.

why you can use DNS on the firebox to resolve you don't need to use lmhost.

How does one go about adding this feature so it does not mess anything up?

Point the network settings of the firewall to the internal DC's which of course are also your internal DNS servers.

I am sorry I have forgotten use PPTP more secure than RAS and with using PPTP the internal DNS will pass all of your DNS info since it becomes a virual network connection. Make sure you uncheck use default gateway or when your users connect they will get locked into only using thier network for all traffic. If you need more detail just let me know.
