I have configured ians a couple of times, make sure you have the latest
versions of the app. (I see Padraig has just mailed the links, use them)
Why not go for channel bonding instead? It has exactly the same
functionality as ians or basp teaming and is _supported_ by redhat.
Basp is not supported and I dont know about ians. If it has a proprietry
module, then they can say "not supported" your kernel is tainted.
On a further note, kernel 2.6 will not be supported by Dell/Redhat until
AS4 is released next year.

Should be grand, I'd go with channel bonding.
