Thank, Andy.  I'll give it a read.  I'm not sure I'm after load 
balancing, though, but rather dedicating one WAN to a specific 
set of machines, if that's even possible.  Also, I've seen 
how-to's on the NET, but all assume that you're starting fresh, 
and adding two WAN connections.  I already have one in place, and 
working fine.
