For HA you're probably looking at something like a SAN for the
storage..  just sharing drives (especially over Netbios) is probably
worse than having a single machine, whereas things like SANs are
designed for handling multiple clients so I'd trust the data integrity
much more (although if one machine is sitting idle most of the time
that's less of an issue).

OTOH a good single machine + a good UPS will probably give you enough
uptime for most cases...  CVSNT availablility doesn't have to be that
high, provided people can update/commit reasonably regularly.
