Domino Clustering for a dummy.

Hello,  I am running Domino server 6.5.1 on two Windows Server 2003 machines.  I want to set up clustering/failover but can't quite get it right.  I have read most of the Lotus Domino R5 Clustering Redbook, to no avail.  I guess most of my questions would revolve around the following topics:
1.  To start with, so far, I have the two Domino servers in a Cluster and I have secondary LAN cards set with the same MAC address and IP. (Not sure if this is what I should do.)
2.  One of the machines also is a DC running DHCP, DNS and AD.  When I enabled the second LAN, my clients in the network started looking to that LAN card IP address for DHCP and were unable to get it. I'm sure this is because of #1 above.  The clients are looking to the IP address that is shared between the machines and one of them isn't running DHCP

I guess I will wait until I get a response to the above questions before telling you any other problems that have occurred.  Oh, and yes the two machines are replicating  with each other just fine.  

Thanks for your help.
