Windows Method of teaming nics

Hello,
I need to know if there is a windows method of teaming network connections?

I have a Dell R610 poweredge. It comes with 4 broadcom nics. I have two of those nics in a team. However, the software that we are running on the server is conflicting with the NIC team.

So, I know how to build nics in the broadcom software. But, it seems to me, that Windows would have some method of teaming nics that would be independant of the software manufacturer. Anybody know of anything?

We are running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise - 64bit.

Thanks,
Ben

Unfortunately, the only way I know of to bond NICs in windows is with the vendor software.  And let me tell you, Broadcom has some of the worst.  I have seen more problems with bonded Broadcom NICs than any other.
