Redundant Router Configuration

I am looking at configuring two 3640's in parallel for redundancy as the core for our enterprise network. I am familiar with the concept of using a virtual IP but have never configured a network for it. I am not familiar with the hardware that would be required to share the front end (T1's). Is there a white paper or other documentation that would provide the basics?

Re: Redundant Router Configuration

The information provided is right on target for what I'm trying to accomplish. Thanks! However, I also need information on what's available to feed both routers. This may not have been clear when I submitted my question. I'm planning on using a 6 meg ATM pipe to feed the 2 routers that will be located at an AT&T site. What I'm looking for is the hardware that can provide the traffic to the routers so they can do their load-share thing. I do know that there is a Mux that will provide one or the other data (though I don't know what brand/models are available), but that won't allow sharing the load.

Thanks again!
