Accessing Visio HTML files via a VPN

I am developing a Visio 2003 map that has hyperlinks to word and powerpoint documents.  This works fine for me locally, but there are times when I want two other people to be able to view/edit these files remotely. I was thinking of getting one of those NAS storage devices that has a VPN, which I know very little about.  

Essentially, I want a storage device that allows me and anyone externally, to be able to view/open the files on the drive.  In effect giving everyone access to a network drive (P: etc).  Is there a easy to setup, secure, cheap way of doing this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The easiest way would be to use a VPN with Windows XP, in this case you wouldn't need to buy additional Hardware.

Another way would be to use Hamachi.

Both allows your partners to access your files via Internet.
