Hi Massimo,

I'd do this at a different level, using a failover mechanism such as MAC
address takeover, NAT translation for virtual IP address takeover, or a
DNS reconfiguration implementation with a short TTL.  Most of these will
require some custom scripting on your part, or you may be able to adapt
software such as Fake (http://www.vergenet.net/linux/fake/), Heartbeat
(http://linux-ha.org/) or Failover (http://failover.othello.ch/) to do
what you need.

Always happy to help an OS/2 user.  :)
