the best and safest way is to create a dmz where you install the isa server. The ISA server has to be on another machine. The ISA server is used as a gateway to your internet.

Do your self a favour and dont put SBS on a domain controller, it has always caused problems, even on SBS (people may disagree..)  

Demote your DC 1st or buy another simple little server and follow the below guide ;

SBS has to be a Domain Controller.  There is no way that it cannot be.

You don't have SBS so it is not relevant to you.

MS declares it to be "unsupported" to put ISA on a DC,..except for SBS2003 installations that have been specifically designed to be that way.   But even in SBS2008 they have been separated.
