frontpage server extensions 2002/windows 2003

After trying to setup frontpage server extensions 2002 in a load-balanced environment (windows 2003 with a NAS back-end), I am admitting defeat. Though we currently use this setup with FPSE for Unix (version4), Windows won’t install FPSE on a remote share… :(

To get around this problem, (we are migrating our FPSE for Unix webs to Windows 2003 for obvious reasons), we are going to setup a single machine with FPSE, and then have a fail-over machine which XCOPYs the web root every X minutes. The load-balancers will then fail-over to the backup machine for us, so, though not optimal, it is functional.
