google "mysql ndb cluster howto"  and pick one that best suits you.  Be prepared for a steep learning curve though.  Try it out then post more specific questions later when you encounter difficulties.

You might also want to try master-slave replication first.  It's much simpler, though there is still a slight downtime in case the master fails as you have to point your apps to the slave.  Google "mysql replication howto" for that.

Thanks for your response. Based on your expertise, is there a tutorial in particular that you would recommend?
I really only used the official mysql documentation i.e. http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysql-cluster-installation.html and http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/replication.html but I wasn't a newbie when I started dealing with this.  I imagine there are more beginner-friendly pages out there.  So sorry, I cannot recommend anything more specific.
