I do that because I need more bandwidth than what one NIC allows, and 
since my backup software allows me to tell some servers (that are taken 
into backup) to use anoter IP adress to send the backup through the network.

I tried bonding, but I had errors similar to this one:

Sep 11 14:49:48 box01 kernel: bonding: Warning: the permanent HWaddr of 
eth0 - 00:1A:78:2F:10:56 - is still in use by bond0. Set the HWaddr of 
eth0 to a different address to avoid conflicts"

So I decided to use 2 NICs on the same segment instead.
