Cisco 1811 Router Configuration - Two Internet Connections - Redundancy

Anyone have good examples of configuring two Internet connections in a Cisco router?
Current Configuration:
-1 Cable Internet Connection w/static
-Client to Site vpn's setup on this static
-Our Exchange Server Domain name is using this static for RDNS etc

Wanted Configuration
-2 Internet Connections w/ 2 statics
-Exchange to stay on cable Internet connection
-Cable Internet connection for fall over/ secondary
-New second DSL connection as Primary web traffic connection

I have configured both cable and dsl connections independently in Cisco routers before but I have never had two connections in 1 router.

Also, if anyone can recommend best practices for this kind of setup please feel free. ie. Exchange on separate connection etc.

1) your router should have 2 wan ports
2) configure lease line on wan 1 (serial 0)

for example
int serial/1
ip address X.Y.Z.A or ( as per IP scheme)

3) configure ADSL line on wan 2 (PPEO-Dailer 1-2)
as you mention you know how to configure

if your require NAT, you can take help from

4) configure NAT for exchange on wan 1
5) configure OWA for exchange on wan 1
6)create static router topermit traffic on wan2

for static routes please see this

7) Site to site VPN

All you have to do is configure the interfaces and then use NAT to get to the proper hosts for the services.

for example
int fa0/1
ip address

int fa0/2
ip address

ip route
ip rotue

ip nat inside source list 105 interface fa0/1 overload
ip nat inside source list 106 interface fa0/2 overload

then make your access lists to control what traffic goes out what provider.
