Yes you can and how to do it should be in your manual. If not available Microsoft has documentation at their site - you will have to the search.

Good luck

Since W2K clustering is a network service rather than a drive service, the answer to your question is yes, it can be done. At the very minimum, you would probably want to add a separate NIC card to each server for the inter-server communications (you could even go card to card with a crossover cable if you like and assign IP addresses with a 255.255.255.252 subnet mask).

Performance is likely to be marginal, so this solution wouldn't be appropriate for performance tuning, but for redundancy, it might do what you need.

For cluster service you need Shared Scsi. This is because the scsi drive is transfered between the two systems. You can find all the requirments on microsoft's website, pick windows 2000, keyword clustering.
