I'm moving a website from an old Windows 2000 server to a my newer Window 2008 R2 server.  I've created a virtual server on my Windows 2008 R2 and I'm using it as my webserver.  With my Windows 2000 server I plug it directly into the optional port on my firewall to protect my network.  I won't be able to do this with the Windows 2008 R2 server so how can I protect my network?

The question phrasing is wrong. Should be "How do I protect my web server" :)

Why can't you plug your new server into the optional port?
Which firewall do you use? How is it configured?

It is not clear what you mean by "virtual server".

The Microsoft Virtual Server is not supported on 2008 R2. Perhaps you mean Hyper-V?

Now, depending on the virtualization platform you use, you will probably be able to network the virtual machine into its own VLAN. That will require you to do VLAN-trunking on the server port. Alternatively, if you server has several physical ports, your virtualization platform may be able to put your "web server virtual machine" on its own physical port.

If you get its own physical port, then you can plug it into the firewall port as before.

If you get a VLAN, then you need a switch and configure a VLAN trunk, and break out that VLAN on another switch-port that you connect to the firewall.
   Or, if your firewall can do VLAN trunking, then you put the web server VLAN into its own security zone.
