You could create a VPN and allow your remote users to VPN into your network and access those files shares as if they were on the local lan.

You could setup an FTP server on your computer and create a user that has access to your M:\ drive. This will allow you to monitor and control access to this M:\ drive and will work regardless of locale.

A good ftp server is FileZilla - http://filezilla-project.org

You would setup your Windows 2000 for Routing and Remote Access.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/network/bb545655.aspx

then your client machines can create a VPN connection to that server, that would allow them access to your shares inside of your network.
