Well Dave might suggest Linux, but knowing how to set that up is beyond the time contraints you might encounter.<br>
You refer to something that is called port trunking (in the hardware world). This is a setting on a layer 2 or 3 switch that basically gets 2 or 4 ports (sometimes more, but its rare on lower end systems) of a switch and combines them into a theroetical single speedy port. <br>
Yet on a software side of things (i presume that is the angle of attack), you should be looking to bridge the two/three nics. On WinXP pro and i would hope w2kserver there is this option. If you are worried about 100Mbit, then wack in another NIC as you suggest. The bridge should then take care of the rest.<br>
I hope you know to set both NICS to 100Mbit full duplex, otherwise your game server might start introducing dumbarse lags and basic high latency effects due to the ammount of info flowing in and out of your system. Grab two high-end intel NICs, this will ensure reliability and efficency.
