There are a number of Linux clustering solutions.  I imagine most support =
Samba.  NFS is actually harder to support in a cluster than Samba from what I =
know.  (I have done several clusters, but never with Samba.)


I am most familiar with Heartbeat, and they have a very active support mailing =

Compaq (HP) supports Lifekeeper, but I have never used it.
