GFS2 over DRBD in an active-active setup works fine IMHO.   Not perfect,
but it was cheap and works well...  Let's me reboot machines with
"no downtime" which was one of my main goals when implementing it...

GFS+DRBD should fit the bill...  You need several nics and cables,
but they are dirt cheap...  Just 2 machines with the same disk setup,
and a handful of nics and cables, and you are off and running...
