I have the same problem, in my case i have this scenario

ADSL (Cisco 837)  ------
                                         | ------  OpenBSD Gateway or 
FreeBSD -- Switchs -- LAN
CABLE  (USR)     -------

Problem is... I'm using diferent providers in eachlink, I would like to 
to jump from one connection to another when one fails,
in best case, I would like to share traffic between then and in case of 
one fail all the traffic goes by only one of then.

How can you get this thing woring fine?  and does it is possible? ;)
