Microsoft DRS and IP regionalization

Now I may be way off, but this is how I would like to have DFS work.  I have identical folder shares on 2 seperate servers.  One server in Location A, and one server in Location B.   I want to create a DFS share that connects to both of them.  Then if you are in Location B you will go to the server in location B and vice versa for Location A.

I will also have DRS file replication turned on so any changes will be replicated to each share.

can this be done??  If not any other ideas on how to do this??

Thats the basic idea behind DFS, they access the shared namespace and the DFS logic works out the local store for access.

But joining two existing servers with existing data wasnt meant to be.
Create a fresh share on the remote server, add the local one to DFS, and set the other remote as the replica.
