haven't played around with it,
but you can do interesting things with amd(8) maps to distribute the
load, handle failure, etc

I think this would be best suited for 'static' into (e.g. non-time
critical html, php scripts with only logic, etc) - as Matt points
out there are cache problems on NFS (have seen this occasionally first
hand when serving up NFS builds on a lan)
