I couldn't find the howto I wanted.  Can you send me some more specific info?  Also I mentioned that it's a PC in Australia..  So I need someone to give me some more details as to where I apply for the necessary stuff on the internet.  will it be APNIC ?

Are you using the linux machine as a router? Or just a server?

I believe that in order to become multihomed you have to apply for your own IP space (not within the block allocated to any one ISP, like the addresses you are likely using now).  I think the smallest block you can obtain is 16 Class C's which are globally routable and at least in Canada/US allocated by A.R.I.N. for a yearly fee - however you must also be able to justify that you will be using the full address space within a year or two.

can you send some details as to where I need to apply for these IP's and how to do the routing for them? or is that done elsewhere ?

Private address allocation is available at www.arin.net however technical requirements are steep.  I double-checked, to get address space from ARIN you need to have effectively utilized 32 class C blocks (over 8000 IP addresses).  

To handle the routing you need to setup routing such as RIP or OSPF to annouce the routes - I don't know if the Ascend ISDN 50 handles either.

Not to discourage you, but multihoming isn't something that is typically done with two ISDN links or a couple class C addresses. Your best bet (until you can fill 8000 IP addresses) is to find a multihomed ISP and use them, that way you get the benefits of multihomed access but the setup, cost, requirements and maintenance is offloaded to your uplink.

Yes, as far as I know.  They have an email/phone number on their web site at www.arin.net that you can confirm with.  

The other two IP registries that I'm aware of are the European and Asia sites so I'd imagine ARIN would probably be the most likely one for Australia -- however if wrong, they should be able to let you know for sure who would be your contact.
