Cisco - Local Director
Foundry Networks - Server Iron
Both do the trick nicely.

There are a couple ways to go about this.  In any event you need a second machine in order
to do the load balancing.  


Get a machine and configure it the same as the existing machine.  As you haven't specified
the OS it's hard to tell you what is available but I'll kick out some common ones.


1) Load balance using a device (cisco has some devices but I can't remember the name - load
directory???.  This is good but expensive), 2) round robin the DNS (cheap but if one machine
goes down every other request knows it).  Load balance using some freeware/commercial software
(such as Resonate or the native MS software if you on windows).
