I followed the instructions in the link below & used mode=5
  http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/BondingInterfaces

Q1:
Is mode=5 the right mode to use for link load sharing+redundancy

Q2:
After configuring on the servers' ports, "ifconfig -a" showed bond0
& eth0 are Up  but eth1 is not showing as Up.  When I connect only
eth0 to a link aggregated Cisco 2960 switch port, I could ping elsewhere
but if I connect only eth1, it could not ping (& ifconfig eth1  showed
eth1 is not UP.  What went wrong?

Q3:
What would be the setting (kindly provide exact commands) on the Cisco 2960
switches' ports for  the 2 NIC ports on my server to connect to obtain load
sharing & redundancy?
