simple/dumb way

dns1:	first box
dns2:	other box
depending on which dns server they found, they will go to
first box or other box

both boxes is up and running at the same time..
if one dies, the other one will automatically work

do natting accordingly...

keep your "common data" on a 3rd backup ...
where all development is done before being released
to the world

put dns1 in newyork .. and put dns2 in la ...

if both is in the same office.. and you lose power,
than both is offline
