Keeping the other comments in this thread in mind, how about coding  
it using the built-in raid of the boxbackup serv?

It will need to adapted to allow for a straight mirror instead of a  
raid-5, but you could then just mount one of the mirror sides on a  
network mount from another server. This would allow you to bring up  
the boxbackup service on that other server once the current one dies.

Making it so that both servers have a boxbackup service running for  
the same users is a bit more work though :-/
