Unfortunately, there is a bug in /etc/apt/sources.list

The line "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian etch main" is wrong, and 
schould be corrected to:

deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian etch main

Please change that and then run:

> apt-get update

Then install the ifenslave-2.6 package:

> apt-get install ifenslave-2.6

Then you can configure bonding in /etc/network/interfaces:

iface bond0 inet static
        slaves eth0 eth1

Also read /usr/share/doc/ifenslave-2.6/README.Debian

Please tell us if it works as expected.
