I am installing SBS2003 behind a Cisco IAD2431. Should I put everything including the SBS behind NAT? I have 5 fixed IPs available. Or should I assign an IP to th SBS and use ISA? I plan to enable multiple VPN connections. Will that influence the choice?

if your SBS has 2 network cards, all clients will connect to internet through SBS only and this way you will require to NAT only your SBS instead of everything. If ISA is available (SBS premium edition) make use of it.

Yes you should NAT everything.  See http://sbsurl.com/twonics for a suggested configuration.  Just because you have 5 fixed IPs doesn't mean you should expose your server directly to the Internet.
