I have some problem to configure a server with fedora box. I have 2 isp and i want to load balancing so my lan can connect to both isp with particular destination, let say i want to go yahoo through isp A and go to google through isp B. I have 3 nic (2 wan and 1 lan). How can i configure  the box from fresh installed  to reach the goal?

Yes that answering some of my question. But how about to divide the destination, let say i want to go europe site/ip through isp A and go to usa site/ip through isp B.

hi im using same concept of load balancing by using load balancing router.main concept of load balancing is trafiq wil go via 2 isp line automaticaly. You dont define which web site wil go via which line.suppose if u try to visit uk site some request wil go via a and some wil go via b. So i dont understand what u meant by define. If you can explain me. But there is a concept ,called wapad.let me go home i wil try to give u some link, by wapad you might be able to define 1 line 4r a perticular website. I tryed b4r but it didnt work 4r me, but u can try.
