We have samba 2.0.0 running on Solaris 2.6 (Sparc)
sharing out various directories and user homes.
Recently I've set it up for Win98 logins and all
this is working fine. Unfortunately this also
means that if the server has to go down so do the
clients, as we're pushing the users to use the
server as much as possible.

My question is what would be the best way to set
up a Backup Samba server (under linux) as well as
mirror user directories?
