the ntp problem is a bug. I'll fix it. It's giving a failure message because it
can't find the ntpd executable. I'll change this to a Notice. In the 
meantime, you can ignore the error message. You'll just have to 
execute the rc.lvs file by hand on the director and real-servers.

I tried it here with an extra NIC in one of the real-servers in a 2 real-server
LVS and it works, I get round robin betwee the two real-servers and the extra
NIC shows up in ifconfig -a and in netstat -rn. 

Maybe I am as good as Julian ;-)

You do have your NIC for SERVER_VIP_DEVICE unconfigured? The script configures
it for you. The warning looks like you've configured the VIP on the NIC already
or you're rerunning the script (which you should be able to do). 
When I do this with a preconfigured extra NIC, or the VIP on lo:xxx I get
problems too. Let me look at it. The script works the first time anyhow ;-)
