funny - just today I talked to Jeremy about this question and maybe there 
will be some development in Samba 3 in the near future in this area. 

Apparently there has been some progress in the internal workings of Samba 
recently that makes the whole cluster thing more feasable.

So, stay tuned.


PS: I have heard, that IBM is running a clustered version of Samba 
internally over GPFS - maybe you should check inhouse.

PPS: Everybody who doesn't come to the SambaXP conference should really 
think about it. It is really worthwhile.
