We are running an SBS server and we have the vpn set up at offsite.ourdomain.com

We have no problem getting the VPN conneceted, but it will not let me use my interent connection at home after I connect to the VPN. I already read this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/317025
but it does not refer to SBS.

Step 2 from that article should work for you, just change that on the client machine itself and you should be able to use split tunnel. But you will also want to verify that your home network is not using the same IP range as the SBS network.

No should just be able to change VPN settings on the client.

1. Go into Network in Control Panel
2. Right-click the VPN connection that you want to change, and then click Properties.
3. Click the Networking tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the Components checked are used by this connection list, and then click Properties.
4. Click Advanced, and then click to clear the Use default gateway on remote network check box.  
5. Click OK, click OK, and then click OK.
