Just trying to get all the options before we go much further.

We already have 2 replicating DC's with the file server on DC1. Would it 
be possible to use drdb here by putting the fileserver data on a 
separate partition and syncing that to DC2? Or how about a third box 
drbd'd to DC1 mirroring the data partition and setting up that as a 
fileserver too?
