dhcp, option routers

Running RH 7.1 and would like to set up my dhcp-server, giving clients more than one GW.

What I have done in dhcpd.conf is
"option routers,;"
It should be possible to add more than one route
like this according docs, but the problem is that
the client only receives one GW (route -n), the
first in the list.

The thing is that I would like to have two ways out (redundancy).

Any suggestions ???

More info !!
It does work with a WIN2000 client, but
to be able to change GW the client must use a
Connection-oriented protocol such as TCP.
Ping will not work.
The problem is still existing on a RH7.1-client,
it does not seem to be able to change GW.
