In regards to VPN's for a small business, why would I get a Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL VPN Router w/ 4-Port Switch (BEFVP41)
over a Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Firewall Router w/ 4-Port Switch /VPN EndPoint (BEFSX41)?
Other than one has the firewall? What does it mean VPN Endpoint? And would I need a VPN router for the client as well as the server?

Nope... two VPN enpoints will be fine.
Nothing else required.

VPN endpoint means that the unit acts as a VPN server.

The client does not need a VPN router, however if the client is behind a NAT router then the router needs to support VPN pass through (PPTP, L2TP, or IPSEC) depending on your endpoint.
