Nt4 w/2 nics using NetBeui

I'm sure this question has been asked a quite a few times, but I was unable to find any reference out there to it.  

Here it goes:


I am running an NT4W machine that is acting as a fileserver.   Data is dropped onto the machine, and almost instantly blast out to another small LAN for processing.   The machine,(p2/350 64M 4x9gig UWSCSI Striped) is faster than this application requires but I seem to find the network is the bottleneck.   We are running NetBeui through 100mb Nics.

Is it possible (or feasable) to have two nics going to the same hub for "200mb"?   I heard somewhere (can't remember source) that it is possible, but I haven't been able to find any info.  

If possible, please include reference links.

Thanks in advance.

According to M$ you can't. Here's a copy and paste. for the full text explanation, follow the link on the bottom.

You can configure multiple network interface cards (NICs, also called network adapters) in a computer (multihomed) for use on the same network segment, but no two network adapters on the same segment in the computer can use NetBIOS. When you install NetBEUI on a multihomed computer, it violates this restriction.

I appreciate the first leg of the answer, and I'm curious about using the multi-homed network (TCP/IP).   Is this the protocol that is suggested?   Would you have any more links going further into multi-homing?  

Thanks

First would be the M$ site.
next the NT networking forum in EE is really good.
jsiinc.com is a good place for questions as well.

It may be a good idea to get the NT resource kit as well.
