Hi ja-notes,
It's possible to buy boxes that do this load balancing for you.  You could also look into doing something with a Linux machine.

An example of such a box is reviewed at http://www.adslguide.org.uk/hardware/reviews/2003/q2/neteyes_cyclone200.asp

Basically, it is possible - but you need to think about it carefully if you're running any Internet services such as webservers or mailservers.

I use a Xincom (lrmoore's list) and it works very well in my circumstances..  A combination of DSL and Cable...  Have found little to naysay regarding this product..
