I'm using windows 2003 R2.Am running hotel reservation system.data has to be replicated btw the 2 servers ,in case the primary server fails the secondary should kick in or we can manualy change network cables etc ,whatever the procedures are.Clients shouldnt feel that the server is down.

nope, DFS wont do anything like this....you are talking about clustering or hot failover software such as netappz tools....you are looking at some big dollars here....
