so ISPs use PCs as routers? Want to tell us about it? I had
assumed ISPs were all using Ciscos etc.

failover can be done without LVS eg HA-Linux. There are
router failover protocols - see Andre's keepalived, which
was originally a router failover, and then adapted to LVS. I
think that keepalived can still do router failover. I
believe Andre is working on his own router failover code.
Also Zebra implements the standard routing demons and you
can use those for failover.
