MySQL Database on SAN?

I have created a Windows 2008 Load Balancing cluster and I have two separate installs of MySQL on each server (two servers total).

I don't know MySQL at all and I'm wondering if it would be better to syncronize the databases between the two clusterd web servers or should i put the database on a SAN?

For either solution, I would need guidance on the steps needed to make it happen.

Thanks.

A real stumper, huh?

Let me rephrase

1.  Should I put a MySql database on a SAN?  

2. If not, how do I synchonize MySQL databases between two servers?
