VPN Windows Domain Controller and DHCP

mdoolittle used Ask the Experts™
I have an office in a remote location. I am removing their window's domain controller and having everyone sign on through our VPN (set up in our routers) to our domain controller here in the main office. How do I set up DHCP correctly to give them the correct gateway etc so they surf out their router and not through the VPN up to our router?
