 What you'll want to do in order to set this up, is build a trunk
group in DSA that consists of the two T1's, and then you'll want to
build a signaling group that uses "isdn" signaling and then (probably
3-4 pages over in DSA) you'll want to assign all the channels of those
T1s as "members" of that signaling group.

 On the asterisk side you'll want to setup the trunks as pri_net.

 Put a T1 crossover cable in between, if there's no carrier loops
involved, and then you're done.
