You need either NT4 or the Memphis version of Win95 (Win97??). Dial-up
networking supports multi-link connections with any number or combination
of devices. I have connected to a 4004 with 2 B-channels plus a 28.8 Modem
for an aggregate bandwidth of 154.4K (the modem connection was 26400).
Worked like a champ. No special equipment or software needed.
