How do I setup "Load Balancing" in Fedora Core 2 for sharing 2 broadband connections?

I currently have DSL and Cable broadband.  I am looking for a way to share these 2 connections through my Linux box.  I have the configuration setup so that I can share 1 of the connections at a time, but I don't know how that I can handle using both connections.  Any help would be help me greatly!
