you could, but hardware VPN is better

On Windows Server 2003 the way to do this is under Administrative Tools, Routing and Remote Access. See for instructions.

I however feel that PPTP is insecure and outdated. You should invest in a hardware firewall that supports IPSec VPN clients, or better yet SSL VPN, such as some Netgear FVS series or Cisco ASA 55xx series devices.
