Cisco VPN on Mac

We have recently installed a Cisco ASA5510 (Sec +) and had it configured apples to apples with previous firewall, which was to allow email, HTTP, HTTPS and Terminal Services. We then setup a VPN in an effort to close off the Terminal Service port, so only access to terminal server is if connected to VPN...

So, everything works perfect on a PC, I installed Cisco VPN Client, connect to the vpn and can then connect to terminal server. If no VPN connection, cannot connect to terminal server. In both connected and disconnected states I can open browser and use web. BUT...

On a Mac, with OS X (brand new Mac Book Pro's al 64bit), once I connec to the VPN, I lose internet access, and cannot connect to nor ping any of the servers on my network, especially the terminal server. If I disconnect the VPN, I regain access to internet.

A little background information, our network is setup to use 192.168.1.x and while we are planning to change, while setting up the VPN, we realized that users on home networks are more than likely having the same IP scheme, so we setup the VPN to use 10.0.0.x  Something tells me the Mac, when connected, is not receiving the 10.0.0.x address and there's an IP conflict. Could that be the case?

Either way, ANY help appreciated, I've also tried to connect with AnyConnect on the Mac, the connection works just fine, but once connected, no internet or access to terminal server.
