The idea is good, with he two Ethernet links will be better used if they 
are bonded, the external access are minor. Our switchs can do Ethernet 
port bounding. I have to stodythe Ethernet bounding on Centos now. And 
it will take less IP adresses.
We have already round robin IP access for the samba access, it's cool.

Thank you.
