	Hello Joseph,

	You could do this in a number of ways, running Quagga or BIRD (or even
	BGPD) on a Linux or BSD server.

	Quagga documentation even has a chapter on this:

	http://www.nongnu.org/quagga/docs/quagga.html#SEC115


	I'm sure several people on this list have experience with this and will
	contribute. Also, it might be send this inquiry to the AfNOG list as well
	(afnog.org).

	Finally (plug) we have some resources that may be of interest to you here:

	Cheers,
	Phil
