Redundant Windows 2008 Servers

I am currently planning a migration to Windows Server 2008 and need some advice pertaining to redundancy of servers.  What are some 'This woks best' redundancy solution that will give me two exact copies of Windows Server 2008 running in seperate locations, with one of them running as a failover. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply.  That answers any questions I may have had on the networking side of setting things up between the two machines... but what about redundancy of files/documents?  What we are going for, is to have our WSS site to be fully located on both machines in case one crashes the other will be running with minimal downtime.  Also we want to make sure our redirected 'My Document' folders will be available on either machine.

Thanks so much for your help!
Hi how would i do DFS Replication.
For example what i am looking for is to have 2 servers with Windows server 2008 Standard R2. I will be using them for Files and Data so i want to have an exact copy of my first server for that if the main one crashes everything stays working with the 2nd server.

How can i do this???
What about cluster for redundancy? is it a good solution for servers redundancy or this is a solution for anything else?
