setting up RRAS in a true DMZ using VLANs for PPTP VPN?

    Here is my scenario:

    I have a client who currently needs a lot of network restructuring on a minimal budget.

    They pay for a static IP. Currently they run 2003 small business server behind a WRT54GL router and a 24 port switch which provides their Domain controller, DNS, DHCP...and SQL service that is used by a proprietary accounting software.
    They have a need for a few users to have access the shares on the network, and use the SQL server.

    I would like to have them authenticate through an active directory by using an RRAS server in a DMZ.

    Since I havent found a firmware that provides true DMZ isolation from the rest of the network i'm not sure what to use...a VLAN configured in the router? in the switch? VPN server on a different machine? VPN server on same machine but different IP on different VLANs or just different subnets?

    I'm not very familiar with VLANs except for the concept of isolating network traffic.

    Any advice would be appreciated.
