Is it possible for me to use two separate internet connections, one via

Yes. Essentially *two* gateways, "iproute2" provides the support.
I have been allotted a wireless connection from University, however this
one presents some trouble in certain tasks (It's also deactivated from
0000 to 0600). Because I intend to set up a server where some of my
friends would hold accounts (for fedora-tour development etc.), I got
myself an Airtel internet connection (it needs to be on 24x7). It would
be great if I could use them both simultaneously and specify what
program should use what interface.
In httpd.conf you can specify the interface the httpd server has to
service and listen to, similarly most (if not all) servers like samba,
dns etc. can be configured to bind itself to and listen on and service
client requests landing on a specific IP address / interface.
A simple howto exists. I have used my GPRS and ADSL in similar
configuration in past.
Do get back in case of further queries.
