I've got a server which is reaching a point where I need to consider load balancing. The server acts as WebDav, FTP, and file server. I also have a hardware load balancer which i could certainly use for this task.  Where I'm running into trouble, is how to setup the second server so it will work properly with iis and files in a load balanced environment.  Almost all the files served up by the server are located on SAN disk.

Is there a tool or guide out there to sync up the IIS information between the two servers constantly?

Syncing the IIS configuration is done manually.  You could script this process and use task schedule to run the configuration changes over on a schedule.

Files are the easy part.  I use a product called Syncback.  They have a free version that has a ton of features and syncs files on a schedule.

You can get it here:

Go to downloads and freeware, because they also have a pay version, which has even more features.  The only gotcha in the free version is that the account that you use to schedule it must be the same account you use to create the sycn profile.  It's stored in the user registry.
