We have several workstations that aren't joined to the domain, connect to the company via PPTP VPN.  The issue is that they have to type the FQDN to access network resources.

I understand that I append the DNS suffix to any request from the client side, but is there anyway to resolve this from the server side.  I have also run across the option of using WINS, but that is not a route we want to go.  

Is there anyway to append the DNS suffix to request coming from a computer not joined to the domain?

Servers are Windows 2003 and workstations are XP.
