Question regarding ICS
It is my understanding that to use internet connection sharing on an xp workstation for a home network, the pc is forced to use the subnet of 192.168.0.1
Is it possible to change the ICS subnet of 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 as we are trying to hook in via VPN to a subnet already with the 192.168.0.1 address..

Greets, welcome to AO..
ahh no.. the ICS server is set to an IP of 192.168.0.1 and there for the other machines have the gateway set to 192.168.0.1.. the subnet mask is set to 255.255.255.0.. unless there is a reg hack I am not aware of a method of changing the default IP on the Host/server..
the pc is forced to use the subnet of 192.168.0.1

You could in 98 and Me
But I'm not sure about XP
Although this line
makes me wonder if somehow you can do it before setting up ICS.
You cannot modify the default network configuration after you enable Internet Connection Sharing. This includes changing the range of private IP addresses that are handed out (DHCP allocator), enabling DNS, disabling DNS, and configuring a range of public IP addresses.
I'll keep looking.
You may to look in to a router, that way you can change the range and the extra benefit of a firewall.

The only way to do that is with a server product and not using ICS, using Routing and Remote Access instead. That way you can give the clients and address range via DHCP and route those elsewhere.
