    Merging DSL modem and cable modem?

    Ok here's my off the wall question,My father always told me the only stupid question is the one you dont ask.I have a westell versalink 327w DSL modem/router running my computer right now,I also on the side have a toshiba pcx1100u cable modem,What im wondering is if i can run those 2 together,Maybe use 1 of the d/link ports from the westell to the toshiba and then a usb cable from the toshiba to another computer? The cable modem has a cable input/ethernet port/usb ports on the back. This may get a bit confusing but what i have is my laptop is on a wireless connection to the westell router,I also have a desktop that only has a built in 56k. at present im useing a usb cable from the westell to the desktop for dsl connection.It's workin out great but i was wanting to know if i hooked those modems together like that if i could have the cable modem run the desktop??? any help if possible i'd appreciate.

    P.S. If i'm just being retarded just tell me and i'll keep my current setup,lol.
