I have a t1 p2p full mesh network for three sites: Major, minor1 and minor2 (think of a triangle)
Everthing is Cisco 2600's using dsu1t's.  Everything working fine.
Upgrading speed - adding an additional t1-p2p between major site and both minor sites.  the minor to minor site (bottom of triangle) is still single t1.
I worked minor1 this week.  
Programmed in Multilink virtual-template1 ,
loopback0 with ip address,
both serials (s1/0 and s1/1) to no ip address, encap ppp, ppp multilink,
and int vertual-template1 as unnumbered to loopback0, ppp auth chap, ppp multilink

both routers setup and link comes up.  speed is great.
the question now is can I configure a second seperate multilink on the major site?
I know that minor2 site will mirror the minor1site - changes to ip etc understood.
I have pasted clean configs of major and minor1- I kow that minor2 will be very similar to minor1.

any help would be good.  
Thanks
Dan
