How hard to run a clustered or redundant setup?

I've got an old desktop machine running as a web server with Fedora 1. I've also got another old desktop machine that isn't doing anything.

I was wondering if anyone has had luck setting up two servers in a configuration so if one dies, the other takes over immediately. Or, having the other get mirrored so you have a complete, up to date backup available.

I've seen articles on "clustering". Is this what I need, and can Fedora do it?

Yes clustering is what you would want.

Generally clustering will allow to share the workload between servers (load-balancing) and that the other servers will manage the workload if one would fail (failover). The second is the one you are looking for... but you might as well have load-balancing working at the same time since it will boost the performance of your server.

The available software for Fedora is quite limited I believe. Since FC2 is using the 2.6 kernel which is rather new. Most software is built for RH9, which runs the 2.4 kernel.

But check out this article, it give a list of projects... One of which might offer a FC2 version.
