What are you trying to do with the two NICs?  Are you trying to use load balancing or teaming?  Or are the two NICs for the purpose of routing between your internal network and another network?

I am not familiar with doing this in any way other than using the drivers supplied with the NICs.  There is a function known as "bridging" built into Windows 2003 Server, but this is used between networks, not if you want the NICs on the same network to be teamed.  Usually to make teaming work, you need both NICs to be from the same mfr., although I've seen posts saying that this is not necessary.  You also need to be connected to a switch that is capable of the same type of link aggregation as you are using on the NICs.  What equipment (brands of NICs and switches) are you using?  

Here's a link to a page at Intel that explains teaming and link aggregation as it pertains to their NICs:
