That's one of the things :)

Thanks for the info.  Yes, I realize that my architecture doesn't have 
to be HA and that a simple server on reliable hardware would do the job 
very well.  I'm in the position to need to rebuild a small architecture 
(all new( or new to me) hardware and such) and thought that this would 
be a good opportunity to work on my own skills in building fully 
redundant systems :)

I've only worked on a couple of Sun HA systems (all using Suns 
software) and have not had the opportunity to do the whole thing.

So, I guess in short I'm doing it for the fun of it :)
