ASA load balancing ISP's

I would like to use Cisco ASA's (any model as they are not yet purchased) to load balance my outbound Internet connections to two ISPs. I do not want failover, I want to use both connections so no one ISP connection sits idle.

Can this be done? If so, how?

You will need a router configured with a routing protocol. Normally BGP is use and it will require you to obtain an AS number and your ISP's configure their router, but can be done with OSPF or EIGRP if your ISP's are willing to supported.

This is for a cutomer of mine, who wants to set this up. I *believe* he is planning to get these. I'm not 100% sure what he has now, but probably just using one and wants to get the second, as well as the ASA firewalls.
