Hi all ,

I want to cluster some freeBSD servers, The purpose of this is to 
learn.  I would like to  run some basic services like www and mail on a 
test network. I would like to set up the servers so if one server falls 
over the other will take over the services automatically, load 
balanceing would be good as well. I have googled, I could be looking in 
the wrong place , there seems not to be much in regard to seting up 
freebsd in a cluster, lots on linux. I have looked at the High 
Availability Linux project , I see on the front page that it will run on 

So I am a bit lost and i am wanting to learn how to cluster freebsd web 
and mail servers, I have looked at  Beowulf clusters, which seem to give 
computers more grunt, Can some on on the list please advise me on what 
clustering softwhere i need to get started and if the High Availability 
Linux project softwhere will do the job.

web links any thing to help me get started would be good. No I do not 
want to change over to linux.
