To be honest I wouldn't bother.
If you have two identical hardware machines and the motherboard fails the just pull the hard disks out and move them across to the other server. You can put duplicate hardware in for most other hardware.

Exchange databases don't really move to another server very well, so having another server there isn't really going to work.

The only other thing I can suggest is that you sit tight for a little longer and looking at using SCR, which is a new feature of Exchange 2007 SP1.
