For incoming traffic they will, no problem, the routers on the Internet
know how to reach IP numbers.

For outgoing traffic you just set your default gateway.

Your not using the SAME IP number for both the DSL and Cable interfaces
because the same legal public IP number cannot exist in 2 places on the
Internet at the same time.  This is one of these issues where your looking
for a problem where one doesen't exist.
