CARP does the job perfectly!
Is you have to LB/RP from a front end (the SPOF?) you can also take a
quick look on LighttpD with the Proxy module (very simple & efficient)
In a heavier (but also quite simple) environment :
* Two (or more) LB/RP on the front with lighttpdproxy - HA with CARP
* Two (or more) Load Balanced Web "Back End" servers
