Using 2 Ethernet Cards on same network

I have a file server with two ethernet cards. They each have IP addys on two separate subnets.  One is running at 100 mb fd, and the other one is only running at 10.  They are on the same switch (I think).  I most of the data is being transmitted over the 100 line, (because DNS doesnt see the other one when you do a name resolution).  So finally my question is:  Is there a way to make more use of the slower line?  Can I "assign" certain programs to only use one NIC over the other?  Any info would help me out.  Thanks.

here's a registry tweak to aggregate bandwidth across both cards.  I don't know of a specific way of making a program use a specific card uinless its written to allow it
