Problems setting up VPN Connection under Windows XP

I'm running two machines with Windows XP professional. The first machine's VPN connection set up without a hitch.. the 2nd on the other hand isn't working properly. The way it's looking is it's treating the VPN connection like a dialup connection or doesn't know that a connection is already established (DSL).

I went to this site to see if it'd offer any help. On the 2nd machine I do not get the "Public Network" screen where it says to either "Do not dial the initial connection" & "Automatically dial this initial connection". Could that be the problem?

If someone could offer any ideas as soon as possible that'd make my weekend (especially since I'm on call this weekend and would like to dial in hehe.) I've been holding off on slicking my main machine since I could only get VPN to work on that one but I'm really needin to format that bad boy.. he's due for his 1 year re-install.

*edit* Forgot to include this.. I do not have an Internet Connection "set up" on that machine.. I have it connected to a router.. My main system which the VPN works fine has MSN.. Do I need to manually add an internet connection to the problem system before setting up a VPN connection?
