Anthony,

Mission Critical Linux, among others, sells NFS fail-over
software for two servers.  Sistina's GFS is a Linux cluster
file system that can allow multiple NFS servers to export
the same shared file system to a large number of Beowulf clients
(this approach allows much more scalability than just a single
NFS server:  you can read about it in the paper "Accelerating
Technical Computing with Sistina's GFS" at www.sistina.com).
If you are interested in using NFS to create a shared root partition
for diskless workstations check out the NFS cluster project
at Sourceforge:

http://clusternfs.sourceforge.net/

I hope this helps.
