I've spent better part of the last day to read documentation on gfs2 on 
redhat's site.

My god, that's pretty much what I'm looking for... To the point that I'll 
probably be ordering a pair of intel 1u rack servers, 2 lsi fibre channel 
card and a fiber switch to begin experimenting with this...

The documentation is very technichal, I'm ok with that, but it seems to miss 
some starting point. For instance, there's a part about the required number 
of journal to create and the size of those. But I cannot find suggested size 
or any thumb-rule for those...

That made my day ;-)
