highly-available server, and have links from there to my three single=20
hosts (all with shared SAN access).  Unfortunately, I only have these=20
three servers to work with.

Is there a way I can use DFS with just the three nodes to create a highly=20
available DFS configuration?  Sorry if my terminology is off a little, I'm=
pretty new to DFS.
