Load Balancing without S/W


I was wondering if it was possible to Load Balance two ISPs
without using any kind of software..

Say, I have a linux box with three NICs
Two NICs connect to two ISPs
the third one connects to the internal LAN..

What I want is that the load shud be balanced between
the two isps and when one of them fails..the second
one shud take charge...including user sessions to the server if
any..
If both fail..then god save us..just don't think
about it..

So is this possible??
If yes..how..
thanks in advance
-Sanjay
