The two nic's will be connected to two layer two switches. The switches will
be connected to a pair of load balancers. The servers will be in a seperate
vlan, their network will be a RFC1918 compliant one.

I am going to be running HSRP on the switches, but I'm wondering how to get
the server to notice when a switch is down, and use the other interface.
Does anyone have experience with doing that? If I don't make myself clear,
