This question has been asked very frequently on this list, starting
with my thread about multiple gateways on may 31st.

Best option is by using firewall routing options, since bsd itself
cannot add more than one gateway (which I think is the TCP/IP
standard, being only one gateway)

please google and read, and if you have further questions, follow up
and ask questions.
