Does anyone know how to set up and configure etherchannel
on Linux system? 

I have a motherboard has two Broadcom gigabit ports, and 
a 24-port SMC Gigabit TigerSwitch which also has Broadcom
chip on it. Both support IEEE 802.3ad protocol which allows
to combine two physical LAN ports into a logical one and
double the bandwitch.There are several name for such feature,
etherchannel is just one of them.

I wonder if anyone has try this on a Linux system, say
SuSE Enterprise Server 8 or RedHat 9 ? any help or suggestion 
will be appreciated.
