The topic you are looking for is Ethernet bonding. In order to do it you have to have a switch that is capable of doing it(assuming you are using a switch). If you are going from machine to machine, both machines have to be set up in the same mode. After trying it for six months I just broke down and bought a couple of GigE cards on ebay ($15 each) and have been much happier with the results.

You can probably start with this link for an explanation of how it is set up.

Be sure to read the comments at the bottom of the article since they provide
some very useful information also.
