I currently have one T1 circuit going into a Frame Relay cloud.  We are getting ready to rollout a new application that will require me to add three more T1 circuits to the Frame Relay cloud.  What is the best way to configure these four T1 circuits as one giant pipe (like a multilink)?  I have Cisco 7200 routers.

Thanks in advances!

About the only way you're going to be able to do this is to order a NxT1 circuit from your provider. Typically, you will be provided with a MUX (or more appropriately, an iMux), handing you off a HSSI interface.
You would need a PA-HSSI module for your router and configure it as if it was just one serial interface.
The frame-relay provider will have to multiplex the 4xT1's on both ends, so they generally provide the hardware.

Depending on the other side of the connection, you could use Multilink PPP to bundle the links.

Here's a fair page at cisco.com about MPPP over Frame Relay:

Good luck!
