No point. ISA 2000 went out of support in August 2006 - this was superceded by ISA2004, then ISA 2006 and now ISA2009/TMG is in beta 2 stage.

You will have - I expect (hope)  - a limited firewall on the DSL router assumning you are using its NAT capability and haven't opened up every port inbound....

If you want to trial ISA2006 then you can download a 6-month limited time evaluation version from the Microsoft web site - search for Forefront Edge

You can find a walkthrough guide here.
