I have two links to the net.  A primary link which is quite reliable and a 
secondary link that is a stand-by.

What's the best way of making the secondary take over?

There's no need to routing protocols because we don't have routing protocols 
running, but I'd be happy to install something like Zebra if it can be 
configured to ping hosts on one link and switch to the other link if they 
stop responding.

I could write a shell script to do some pings, but there's the risk that bugs 
in my script cause more problems than network outages...  :(

I do not get viruses because I do not use MS software.
If you use Outlook then please do not put my email address in your
address-book so that WHEN you get a virus it won't use my address in the
>From field.
