You could just "load balance" using two equal-costs routes to the next 
hop.  I've never been a big fan of trying to get a 7500 to try to do 
anything complicated.  It seems all it takes is a real harsh sneeze to get 
them to keel over.

Sometimes it doesn't need to be that harsh.

To begin with it will only be necessary to channel 2 FE ports and the hardware is 7513 routers and (probably) Cat3524 switches.
