Yes, it is called bonding.  It has several options
for configuration, you would be looking at running
it in a load balancing configuration with LACP,
the /etc/modprobe.conf settings for that would
be something like:

options bond0 lacp_rate=1 mode=4 miimon=100

But this will also depend on your switch vendor.

I've only used two(2) NICs in a trunk, so I would
imagine you have some testing ahead of you to not only
get it to function as you wish, but also get the desired
