VPN IP and Subnet scheme question... what are my options?

I have a windows server 2003 PPTP VPN setup.  

My OFFICE (VPN host network) network IP and subnet is:
192.168.0.X &

My HOME network IP and subnet is:
192.168.1.X &

I changed my HOME network configuration so the networks are on different subnets.  My OFFICE IP & Subnet scheme is a very popular scheme for home based routers.  This means I either need to change my OFFICE scheme or make sure all of my VPN client's networks are not using the same network scheme as my OFFICE network.  I really don't want to have to change my OFFICE scheme.  What are my option here?  Do I have any besides reconfiguring my OFFICE network?

    Afraid not. Only options, as you suggested, are change office, or all clients. Office, though it can be a big job depending on the size of the office network, is the proper solution as lrmoore stated, as you will have issues with networks such as hotels, over which you have no control.
