Pick one default gateway. On that gateway define the routes for the
subnets. When a client attempts to route through the gateway, if the
gateway knows of a shorter route for the client, the gateway should
(unless you disabled it) send an ICMP Redirect message back to the
client. This Redirect message will cause the client to create a route
to the correct gateway.
That's the easiest way I know of. If this doesn't help you, then I
didn't understand the problem. Maybe a network diagram would help, in
