Yeah - Mandrake (in its first incarnation) was RedHat + KDE, although its much
more than that now.

I have successfully bonded two bcm5700 cards (using both bcm5700.o and tg3.o),
both ports on a dual port Intel Pro/1000 MT cards, both ports on a dual port
Intel Pro/100 card as well as two individual Intel Pro/100 cards.
All these were using the bonding.o driver in conjunction with the normal card
drivers (e100 in the case of the 100mbit Intel cards) on various Mandrake
versions (all with 2.4.x kernels)
Sorry I can't be much more help.
