At least two, but I think I recall four. Someone else will doubtless know

See the Linux High-Availability Project [1] and the Beowulf clustering 
capability [2] for at least two examples of software you could use.

The question is not clear. Generally speaking, FC can support as many 
server processes and as many client connections as your hardware will 
handle. You are much more likely to see bottlenecks in disk input/output, 
in RAM usage, in network speed, etc.

>What is the max ram a single FC1 server support?

I don't recall exactly but I think the standard kernel goes up to either 
4GB or 8GB; the bigmem kernel does more. (And an FC server on the AMD 
x86_64 architecture can do even more.)

Hopefully these answers are correct and address what you were looking for. 
Others can surely provide more answers, or perhaps corrections to mistakes.
