Subject: PPP/Slip "load balancing" - can anyone clarify?

There is supposedly a magic feature by which one can attach two SLIP or
PPP interfaces to a single remote host, i.e., have two serial (presumably
modem) lines going from point A to point B, and get, in effect, a single
double-width line. A friend assures me Linux can do this; does anyone
know if NetBSD can as well? We have some interest in finding out, because
I'm having some reliability problems with the Linux machine in question,
and considering advocating a switch.
Additionally, it is running a "cyclades" (sp?) 8-port serial card; if anyone
can tell me that it's supported, I'll be happy. (port-386 question, maybe?)
