Thank you for your reply.  As for your suggestion of having a common
mountable share - well, yes, that's exactly what i'm trying to do.
I want to take to servers, and create a NAS device from them.  I don't
already have a load balancer, but using RRDNS is straightforward
enough.

The other aspect of this initiative is to gain some useful applicative
experience with cluster suite, as we'd like to clusterise our front-end
web servers down the road as well.
