Here is a way to do it:
Install IIS on the VPN server (windows 2000)
Request a machine certificate for the VPN server using the IIS Certificate Request Wizard
Install the RRAS server role on the VPN server
Enable the RRAS Server and configure it to be a VPN and NAT server
Configure the NAT server to publish the CRL
Configure the User Account to allow dial-up connections
Configure IIS on the Certificate Server to allow HTTP connections for the CRL directory
Configure the HOSTS file on the VPN client
Use PPTP to connect to the VPN server
Obtain a CA Certificate from the Enterprise CA
Configure the Client to use SSTP and Connect to the VPN Server using SSTP
