Looks like I have a 10.04 server setup the old way but it is working.
Here's my config.

iface eth0 inet manual

iface eth1 inet manual

auto bond0
    iface bond0 inet static
    bond-mode balance-rr
    bond-miimon 100
    up /sbin/ifenslave bond0 eth0 eth1
    down /sbin/ifenslave -d bond0 eth0 eth1

Looking at it appears as
though if you're using the "bond-slaves" method you also no longer need to
have the "iface ethX inet manual" lines.  Is this correct?

I'll have to look into migrating over to the new way in my next maintenance
