Two NICS, Two IP Addresses - ONE SERVER NAME

Setup - Internet monitoring system setup w/ two NICS each has a seperate IP 
address (both in same subnet).  Only one has default gateway setup - problem 
is that it's automatically getting registered in DNS w/ two IP addresses for 
same name which is causing sporradic problems.  Any ideas on how to configure 
this in DNS to eliminate the DNS confusion?

Thanks in advance!

Then Kevin replied below:

Two ways to resolve this.
Add this registry value:
On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry
Value name: PublishAddresses
Data type: REG_SZ
Value data: Specify the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the interface you
want the record for.
You can also use the listener IP address on the Interfaces tab, DNS will
only create the host for the IP address listed, but if you want DNS to
listen on all IP addresses and create only one record use the registry

Multiple NICs on the same subnet is not normally a useful configuration
in any version of Windows Server. But possibly with a diagnostic setup
you have some need for it?

1. How do I make the packets route back to the gateway from which they

Currently the gateway marked as "default" is able to serve content
from the apache. The other one cannot.

I tried adding static routes, but that didn't work.

Any help is appreciated.
