Help? Two DHCP pools + VPN

    I'm looking to create a setup where I would have 2 DHCP pools, and a VPN tunnel to another network. The reason I need two DHCP pools is so that one pool will be for computers which I would like to connect directly to the internet bypassing the VPN tunnel, and the other DHCP pool for sip phones which need to connect to a phone system on another network through a VPN tunnel. Is this possible to do with Tomato + mods? Which mods? How would I go about setting something like this up? Where do I start?

    If a DHCP request comes to the router, how would the router know from which DHCP range to hand out an address?

    I believe that normally when you have multiple dhcp pools you specify which devices belong to which pool by placing their mac addresses into whichever pool they belong to. I'm pretty sure this will be pretty easy to do with Tomato. What I'm more unsure of is the ?routing table setup? or maybe it's something else that would specify which devices go straight to the internet and which ones go through the vpn.
