Re: [TCLUG:4244] Using Two Modems...

It should be do-able.  You would set it up as a single device, then
masquerade over that.  Check out /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/README.eql on
your Linux box.  That readme file is pretty verbose.  It's from 1995.  
It's probably a lot easier these days.

Let us know how it works out.
