Two Internet Connections, One server

OK, I'm very, very new to networking. Please be kind. I work for a small company. We have a server running Lotus Notes that is accessed both by people inside our LAN and about 50 employees that connect over the internet. Our internet connection is a simple DSL. We recently installed a hi-tech phone system and we now have a boatload of bandwidth available on the other connection and a handful of static IP addresses that came bundled with the phone T1 connection. I am being asked to use that data connection for the internal LAN and continue having the remote employees dial in through the DSL. The reason for not migrating remote employees is that the Notes connection documents use a static IP address (the DSL one). I know that the simple answer is "change the remote connection documents," but please without me going into a lengthy dissertation as to why I can't do that at ths time, please just accept right now, I can't do that. We have a firewall currently acting as our gateway, so the "internet" only sees the red zone IP address on the firewall. If I switch the firewall to accept the new data connection with the new IP address, is it possible to set up, say, another firewall with the old IP address to allow the remote users to still connect to the server? I haven't yet been able figure out a way, but haven't given up hope.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Can you add a network? Yes. But with the limited amount of information you have been able to provide, that is the short answer.
