Subject: [users@httpd] High availability concept question


If I load balance between two 2.2 Apache HTTP Servers on two separate
physical servers, what type of device or software can I place in front
of the web servers to allow users to access either web server via one IP
Address?  I did a quick search in the documentation but wasn't sure what
to look for.  Would it be as simple as pointing the users to a router
configured with some type of forwarding?  How do I prevent this device
from becoming a single point of failure?  I know these questions are not
Apache specific, at least I don't think they, but after being a member
of this list for a couple of months and seeing the level of expertise on
this board I figured someone could point me in the right direction.  I
am not asking for a how-to response, just concepts on where to start to
start looking or which documentation I should look at.  Thanks.
