Im not one sure whether you want to share a single network connection across 10s or share two  network connections. However with Linux you can to either :-) To share a connection you will need two network adapters in your linux box, one side connected to the router the other to your LAN.
Depending on how many IP addresses your ISP give you you might need to run NAT on the linux box.
To share two network connections you will need a more intelligent routing metircs to load balance, I would also suggest running a proxy server such as squid on the linux box to maximise your bandwidth. Hope that helps.
