My situation is that I have installed and configured a SBS 2K3 network but I have at least 8 Vista users who will need to VPN into the Network. Rather than configuring each PC individually is it possible to create a copy of a VPN connection file and send it to each user as can be done is XP? I've tried to locate the Network Connections path but no joy so far.

You need The Connection Manager Administration Kit which is part of the adminpak for Vista,

Download and install the executable containing the AdminPak.msi file  from: http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/8/1/681c9ba7-380f-4756-ac85-a3323437e6c3/windowsserver2003-kb304718-administrationtoolspack.exe
