Hello, I'm thinking to configure two diferent context on an ASA 5510, 1st for VPN users access, with 1st ISP (this is the use now, without contexts), and the 2nd context to configure access to a web server in a DMZ, from inside network and also from internet, via a 2nd ISP. BUT, I have read at Cisco web pages that VPN is UNSUPPORTED in multiple contexts scenario, Is this right?. I have a ASA 8.0(2)18 version.
Thank you in advance.

Yes, correct, VPN is not supported in multiple context mode (unfortunately).

Ok, then I'll need some other vpn server to use multiple context and Ipsec vpn access for my users, is this the only way?.
Thank you.

Yeah, or just run single context.

Right, but then I think I can not have 2 ISP lines and use the 1st to access a web server in a dmz, and the 2nd for vnp users access and default outside route to internet. I have tried and I could only get one of these depending on the default route in single mode. Do you know any way?

Yeah, you are correct, you can't do that in single context mode unless you specifically route the VPN addresses out the VPN interface (of course this really only works for site to site).  Unfortunately you'll need two physical boxes (one for VPN and one for Internet) if you want to keep VPN and Internet/DMZ separate.
