well, if you are running a *nix machine you should have either mirror or 
mirrordir ( or both )
either running on second maachine will keep them synced at whatever 
interval you specify.

there is also sync, which does the same.

not sure how to get the second machine to start running as the primary 
if the first goes down.

and completely lost on doing the synchronisation between the machines on 
windows machines.
