Yes, I would like to have a shared storage setup, the question is  can I do
it from the scsi cards I have & if so what other equipment I need to have
this setup.

It depends of what you want to do ... which kind of cluster do you want to
implement ? a linux-ha type cluster based on heartbeat ?
Do you need a shared storage ? in that case a san in fiber-channel or iscsi
should work. Some scsi adapters are able also to handle shared scsi bus.
If you don't really need a shared storage, you can just replicate data with
drbd ...
