Using the LDAP master/slave paradigm.  Even better would be to use the
Novell e-Directory method and have a 'peer' network.  So any updates
against any system in the peer-ring, will update (and make sure it happens
- receive confirmation) every other member in the peer group.

Sounds good - someone with a lot more time than me going to pick it up??
