We have 2 ISA Server 2006 Enterprise servers that are to provide users with proxied access to the Internet. They are not really at the "edge" of network since there is a Cisco firewall between them and the Internet and have NAT private addresses.
However, they are both at the same point in the network. There is no "Front" and "Back" firewall differentiation between them. The only reason for 2 servers is redundancy/load balancing.
Which template is the correct template?
I am guessing Edge Firewall because they both share a single virtual IP so they look like a single ISA server to clients, but it is confusing since Edge Firewall template seems to assume you are putting the ISA Server directly on the Internet as your last firewall.

ISA Server templates are mainly only XML files and some bitmaps and should help novice ISA Server Administrator to decide which network layout they should choice. You can use the Front/Backfirewall or Edge template in you scenario. It is possible to change the network layout after template selection. You can add more networks, change the network relationship between Route and NAT and more to customize the networks for your environment!
