    unsure how to do it through the server itself.

    But you could try getting a dual wan router instead, it will load balance the connection for you.
    Something on the lines of:

    Or Cisco router, but they are more exp.

    Sonicwall's do this as well.

    Just some thoughts on the server side of things.
    If you have two eth connections.
    Then you would need to config your DHCP to set the DNS entries accordingly and gateway (your two nics).
    Then the clients would be able to connect to one and if its down then it will jump to the next.
