This is usually handled by just adding an additional attribute for
that user (or the Service Type Default). I know USR uses a VSA
of Next-Hop-Gateway to determine that, and I believe Ascend also
has one. You'll have to consult your NAS documentation to see whether
it allows you to specify a gateway per user.

As a side note, remember that just because a RADIUS server might have
an option to specify that, doesn't mean that it will actually work for
you (your NAS might not support it).
