Do you mean 2 PC's with each a separate IDE drive?

OpenSSI + DRBD provides that functionaility.. but the integration of DRBD 
into OpenSSI isn't ready (last I heard, there was working code but it had 
problems)

If you are looking for cheap shared disk hardware, you can get an external 
Firewire IDE disk. (e.g. Maxtor OneTouch allows 4 'logins' to the drive)
I haven't tried it yet, but I guess GFS should be able to run on it.
