Allow VPN to windows 2000 server ?

I have become involved with trying to secure the internet access at
my sons primary school.
The school has a linux gateway running debian which connects the school to
the internet. (Kindly provided by an ISP - the founder of which has a
child at the school)
The schools other systems are cared for by a 3rd party provider. And the
3rd party would like to be able to support the school Windows 2000 servers
via a VPN. My questions are
- is this possible with iptables?
- can anyone point me to the "stuff" I need to know / read about.
I have already come up with a script that would tighten the internet
gateway with respect to forwarding / input / output and allowable internet
services. However I don't know enough about VPN's and more importantly
don't have a windows 2000 server at home to test VPN's throught a linux
gateway with iptables with. So I need to get the lists help to find out
what has to happen...
I wish to be able to deliver the script to the ISP as an almost 'fait
accompli' - the easier I make it for them, the more likely it is to happen.
