SSL for Newbies

Hello all,
Okay, I have never ventured into SSLs in my life.
Let me explain what I currently have and then if SSL will work.
I have three Windows file servers (2 are 2003 R2 and one is 2000) that remote users connect to via VPN DSL or T1 lines.
I want to give the ability for remote users to connect from home, but right now they have to install a Cisco VPN client on their home PC in order to do this.  Then they get on through remote desktop connection.
Can I setup SSL to do this?
Any help or pointing me to ebooks on this subject would be helpful.
Thanks,
Kelly W.

You might want to read Charlie Hosners paper here as it covers the fundamentals of SSL VPN's (but not Cisco's implementation)
