Hi Markus...

iproute2 is what you are looking for.  Your issue is strictly routing so
iptables/ipchains isn't the best way to go.  We needed something very similar
a few weeks back; although not over a dial-up line.

Take a look at the Linux 2.4 Advanced Routing HOWTO.  You can find a copy
at www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Adv-Routing-HOWTO.html.  There is a section
covering iproute2 with examples.

Debian potato already uses iproute2 although they call it iproute, so you
don't need to install anything special.  All you need to do is recompile
your kernel to add IP Policy Routing, set up the tables and away you go.
The HOWTO explains all this.

You can use iptables/ipchains if you need to do other things.  But iproute2
is the way to go for you.
