IIRC, to do this in bind, you would edit your db.<domain> file and do something like this: www IN A 126.96.36.199 IN A 188.8.131.52 DNS queries for www.jdcomputers.com.au would then return both IPs to a client, the client would then use either one to connect to your website. Additionally if one didn't work, the client would (eventually in the case of IE) try the other. -Jim P.
