Multiple Gateways

Here's my scenario:

I have 2 offices, OFFICE1 and OFFICE2, that are connecting via an ISDN circuit(3COM OfficeConnect Routers).  OFFICE2 has 2 ISDN circuits, 1 to connect to OFFICE1, and one to connect to the Internet(via a proxy server). I need to figure out how to allow OFFICE1 to have web access using the proxy server in OFFICE2.

Maybe a diagram will help:

-----------             -----------
| OFFICE1 |<----------->| OFFICE2 |<---------->|INTERNET|
|         |             |         |
-----------             -----------

I tried to add 2 gateways in Windows(95, 98 & 2000) on OFFICE1 PC's, 1 for the router which connects to OFFICE2, and 1 for the proxy server at the other office, but I had no luck.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Office2 are all Windows98, but that doesn't matter because the proxy server is a hardware device(MultiTech Proxy Server).

3com office router in office2 should be set with a default route of 0.0.0.0 being sent to the proxy router and route to office1 network being sent to 3com office router in office1.
