Setup a direct-routing (DR) architecture on the private LAN.  If you want to
do it without health checkers you can try the configure script.  Otherwise,
you can try software like ldirectord (, keepalived
(, or Redhat's Pirahna.

Here is a good document to read from Wensong  Also, be sure to read at
least the Mini-HOWTO for gotchas and the ARP problem.  Since you use 2.6 you
should use arptables to work around the ARP problem.
