Does anyone know how to mirror using a network connection on MacOSX? Under Linux it can be done using what they call a "network block device". I can find no equivalent device under BSD.

My problem is that I need to set up 2 MacOSX machines as internet servers with no single point of failure. I can build one as a RAID machine and mount the RAID on the other, but the power supply and buss are single points of failure on the RAID machine. I need to be able to mirror across the machines so one can step in if the other fails with no loss of data or down time.

I'm using 2 G4's with the ULV dual channel cards.
