In Answer to you question re Windows 2000/2k3 you would just need to install
routing and remote access service (RRAS) - part of windows, you can then add
OSPF as a routing protocol and tell it which adapter to listen on.
I have used this successfully when setting ISA Server up with a default
gateway off one nic (pointing towards the net - protected by a decent
firewall) and another pointing at the local network, one can then learn the
LAN routes using OSPF or RIP etc. and have a default route out the other

If this was 5+ years ago, I'd have said RIP as it works great for
supplying only gateway address, but I want RIP to go RIP and will
not use it again. So yes OSPF seems like best choice, but I was
hoping something simple for gateway-only is available. I've no idea
yet how to deal with Windows (all win2000 and win2003), anybody?

Yes, anycasting will be involved but only for very small number of
servers (all linux) - that is kind-of separate issue. The equipment
itself however will only see local gateway addresses (obviously), so
it should not care or know about it.

Can't use HSRP in this case (or IVRP or whatever else its called with
non-cisco options) - too long to explain why.
