My friend maxx (http://maxx.zweix.com) gave me this idea for a load
balancing solution.  Thought I might share and ask for comments.

In a giving situation where you have two servers (assuming identical
passwd, shadow, group) one alpha and one beta.  In DNS have an entry for
each server:  alpha.ltsplab.com  and beta.ltsplab.com

then with each entry add a cname entry that points to gdm.ltsplab.com
then point your gdm login configuration option to gdm.ltsplab.com.

Then DNS will do alternating resolutions to alpha and beta.  This will
give a "poor man's load balancing" :)

Anyone have any thoughts or problems with this idea?
