perhaps you should be asking about clustering as opposed to mirroring?

ok we can go there... however i was told (correct me if im wrong) that if you clustered 2 servers that if one server went down you lost the whole cluster...if thats true then thats not fault tolerance.

Server Cluster provides failover support for applications and services that require high availability, scalability and reliability. With clustering, organizations can make applications and data available on multiple servers linked together in a cluster configuration. Back-end applications and services, such as those provided by database servers, are ideal candidates for server cluster.
Protection Against Failure

Microsoft cluster technologies guard against three specific types of failure:

Application/service failure affects application software and essential services.
System/hardware failure affects hardware components (for example, CPUs, drives, memory, network adapters, power supplies).
Site failure could be caused by natural disaster, power outages or connectivity outages.
