load balancing, bonding, adsl, freebsd stuck

Hi guys and girls,

I've got freebsd installed, i'm looking to set up zebra to define multiple persistent routes.  I've heard people talk about it and can find answers to specific questions but can't find the actual software or any faqs/ tutorials on installing and configuring?

I've heard gated could be the way forward but the owners have withdrawn it so can't find that either.

Is there any way to do this?
Many thanks

See http://freebsdwiki.net/index.php/Zebra for info

to install:
# cd /usr/ports/net/zebra
# make install clean

or install it as a package (faster but you can't customize it):
# pkg_add -r zebra

after you install, you may want to run
# rehash
to make sure that your shell sees the new program in it's path (or log out and back in)

or check the man page for zebra after you install it:
# man zebra
