Check out the gnus-dired-mode commands:

,----
| Minor Mode Bindings for `gnus-dired-mode':
| key             binding
| ---             -------
| 
| C-c             << Prefix Command >>
| 
| C-c return      << Prefix Command >>
| C-c C-m         << Prefix Command >>
| 
| C-c C-m C-a     gnus-dired-attach
| C-c C-m C-l     gnus-dired-find-file-mailcap
| C-c C-m C-p     gnus-dired-print
| 
| C-c return C-a   gnus-dired-attach
| C-c return C-l   gnus-dired-find-file-mailcap
| C-c return C-p   gnus-dired-print

While composing a message, you can open a separate dired buffer (say,
C-x 4 d), mark the files you want to attach, and hit C-c C-m C-a
(`gnus-dired-attach'). The files get inserted at the end of the active
message buffer, not at the previous mark, which is unfortunate because
I usually like to attach files before my signature. It's not too hard
to move the resulting MML tags around.

There are a couple of limitations with gnus-dired-attach. One cannot
choose the disposition or description of the attachments
interactively, and one can only insert marked files from one dired
buffer at a time.
