	Yes: the Veritas cluster software has hooks 
	sufficient to allow one to have a whole whack
	of Sambae running on different machines, and
	be able to fail over software from failing
	machines to ones that are still up.
	In principle it should be relatively easy to
	build scriopt to fail over samba virtual servers,
	and close to trivial if the cluster has a 
	big common filesystem...
