[Gllug] routing via a second external IP

I am currently in the process of installing another ADSL circuit in our
offices (regrettably due to the apallingly low speed available on ADSL at
our physical location  - 600Kbs if we are lucky!).  The idea is to use this
connection purely for telnet connection in from certain specific users/IP
addresses; to avoid bottlenecks at certain times when the 'nromal' ADSL line
is 'swamped' with websurfing traffic.

It would seem a pity to use another Linux box to accomplish this if I can
simply do the following:

1)install another interface card in the existing Linux box, connected to the
new adsl circuit and router
2)set up specific routes to the IP addresses concerned within the linux-box
routing table, so that outgoing packets do not go our via the default route

Any reason why this should not work ??
