We've a new server which has two network cards (1GB) incorporated. We are planning to setup NIC bonding to look for redundancy, but we want also to duplicate, is possible, the network throughput. I've the following questions:

1. How can I setup networking to duplicate or quadruplicate network through on eth0?
2. What other devices I need to achieve this?
3. Can bonding, besides solve redundancy, increase throughput on Ethernet interfaces? How? Which setup?

NOTEL I'm running Debian Linux (lenny)  on it. We want also to join several other servers to this new-one, that's why we need this through
