Hi,

I think you need give bit more information before anyone can make suggestion. Where do the DSL links connect to? What devices are behind the DSL router? Are you running OSPF inside?

HTH,

As long as OSPF "sees" multiple paths with same cost, OSPF will equal cost load balance.  Kind of physical media doesn't matter.
