You should look at heartbeat (linux-ha.org) for High Availability.. But
You are opening a can of worms that will be difficult to handle.. rsync
will be really difficult to keep in sync, especially if users start
updating files on the secondary server.. You should do a search on
google for DRBD.. it is a form of network mirroring.. perhaps it would
be of use to you..
