Generally no.  You have to have a single gateway.

However, if you really wanted to, you could break the entire Internet into two subnets and add static routes.

route 128.0.0.0 with subnet mask 128.0.0.0 through one connection (this will include 128.0.0.0 through 255.255.255.254)
let the rest route through the default gateway, which needs to be set to the other connection.
(make sure the statically routed "subnet" doesn't include the other public network you are on - if it does, set up another static route to exclude that network)

This won't give you any true load balancing, but it will use both connections to access the internet depending on what public IP Address you are accessing.

Hi,

I don't see the reason why you cannot use it, since one connection is broadband and the other just  plain old POST but you really wouldn't see any benefit...i think

I actually don't see the reason why you would want a dial up running on the same machine as your broadband connection!

Why would you want to do this?

It should all work with no configuration required if you are using an ADSL router, you just need to set Internet Explorer to never dial a connection to force IE to use the router, and thus your ADSL connection.

Only difference using a normal modem on an ADSL enabled line is that the normal modem will only manage speeds of about 42k due to the ADSL signal.
