I've done a little bit of research into this, but I haven't actually played 
with any of them.  The best developed, as far as I can see, is Coda 
(http://www.coda.cs.cmu.edu/).  It's a clustering file system that works on 
the idea of local caches.  A nice touch is that it has Windows clients and 
servers as well as Linux packages and source code.

Hope this helps,
