Two computers, Two ISP accounts, one 10Base-2 localnet?

I'm trying to set this up and am having a hard go at it.  Hopefully
someone will be able to give me a quick answer.

The setup:
  I and my rommate have Linux running over a 10Base-2 network in our
house.  We have a fully operational net (192.168.xx.xx) that we use
to play net-doom, etc.

The problem:
  We each have different Internet (PPP/dynamic) accounts with different
ISPs.  However, if one of us has a valid PPP connection, we would like
to be able to share it with the other, rather than having to establish
a second PPP connection.  Eventually, the network may expand to a third
computer, which probably won't be running Linux.

The solution:

Please Cc replies to my address, I don't often get a chance to play
on usenet.  FWIW, I run slackware 3.0 (kernel 1.2.13) and my rommate
runs slackware 2.0 (kernel 1.2.1).

Thanks in advance,

1. two network cards, two(?) networks, one computer...


At work we have several servers with two network
cards per configured on the same network.
Ie. one card would be and the second one
One card is plugged into the backbone.
However, the other card is plugged into a 'server-only' hub,
I guess for inter-server communication.

My question: is this sane?
