Default To VPN or not to VPN

I work at a small insurance agency and have been saddled with maintaining the network etc... We are going to be adding a branch office soon and will need to that office connected to the network in the main office because of our paperless system.

In the main office we have two servers, one that keeps our shared files, antivirus software and a couple other minor apps. and runs Windows Server 2000. The others server houses all of our imaged documents and runs Windows Server 2003 small business.

The branch office has windows XP systems. Both offices have boradband connections and Zyxel Prestiege 324 routers (which I don't believe can do VPN)

What I want is that when the employees turn on the systems in the branch office that they either automatically connect or just need to clinck an icon or something (some are not very gifted when it comes to computers )

What is the best way to get this thing off the ground? I can get new routers if need be.

Is it possible to use VPN and get the results that I want or do I need to explore other avenues?

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
