You have several options available.  The most simple being DNS 
round-robin, but this setup does not handle failed servers very well (if 
you control the DNS server, there are some creative things you can do). 
  You could also have a front-end Apache server that uses mod-rewrite to 
distribute load; examples are in the mod_rewrite documentation.  Then 
you have the high-end solutions, like a hardware load-balancer device, 
or software load balancer which require a dedicated server, ie IBM's 
Edge Server (the compontent used is what used to be Network Dispatcher) 
or something like the Linux Virtual Server project
