Domain Setup

(OP)
Not sure if this is the place for this but:

We are moving to a house that does not have DSL. Currently I have a domain (combination wired and wireless) that is configured as follows behind the DSL modem:
1) A hardware firewall
2) A domain controller (Win2k Server) that houses an Exchange 2k server
3) A web server (Win2003 Server)
4) A sql server
5) Two towers and 4 laptops with print sharing via WinXP

Now that I am losing my DSL, here is my plan. Please tell me if it makes sense:

I will need to go to cable broadband at our new house but since they do not (as far as I know) offer static ip addresses I will need to host the domain itself at a remote location. Then I will have to access the domain remotely. My firewall has a vpn that I can enable.

I am planning on moving my Exchage to one of the other towers so that it is not on the domain controller.

Is this a good way to go? Is there a better way? What are some good utilities for remote access. I update my web sites with MS Visual InterDev so I will need that capability.

I am totally open for advice!

Thanks in advance~
