If you're using win98SE it has a built in capability to do that also.  You just have to make sure that you don't have any IRQ conflicts with this config.  The easiest would be if you have a PS/2 mouse and nothing else on the serial ports, you can make one modem COM1, and the other COM2.

you want to investigate multilink ppp

<extract from win98 help file>
To set up a network connection using multiple modems


Set up a Dial-Up Networking connection using one modem.
In the Dial-Up Networking folder, right-click the connection icon and click Properties.
On the Multilink tab, click Use additional devices, and then click Add.
In Edit Extra Device, select the device you want to add to the connection, and then click OK.
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 until you have added all the modems you want.

Notes

To set up a  , you must have two or more modems installed on your computer, one phone line for each modem, and an    that supports    and multilink connections.
If the first modem connects successfully but the second modem fails to connect, multilink is probably not supported by the ISP.
Multilink is part of Dial-Up Networking. It is not available when using other communications programs.
Although Multilink is designed for ISDN modems, it can be used by two or more analog modems of the same or different speeds. However, using analog modems can cause serial overrun errors that impair the performance of the multilink connection.
For more details about multilink connections, see the Windows 98 Resource Kit.
