Can I use SQL Server Failover cluster and Log Shipping together

I have two servers in a primary data centre which I need to fail-over for each other using SQL Server Fail-over Cluster in Single Instance mode (on a shared disk array) .

In addition, I need to log ship to a secondary data centre, where the data is backed up to tape from the secondary database in the log shipment.

Will the Fail-over servers continue to provide log shipment to the secondary, transparently after a fail-over?

Thanks,
Stevod

It would work the same way as if it were not clustered.  Log shipping really doesn't care if the underlying db is a shared resource.
