backing up my data

I have a couple of old computers at home and would like to turn them into servers for my friend's site, snooples.com where they are all cluster together (I think this is the right terminology), so if one computer fails, then the other one kicks in. This way the server will always be up. I just want to know if this is possible?

Also, if one computer is corrupted or becomes infected, will they all be infected as well (since they are clustered)? Then what is the best way to back up my data?

thank you

When you post something like this you really need to put the speks on here. Let me know what the harddrive size is how much ram, cpu how many harddrives and also what operating systems and what bits

Instead of clustering the computers (which I've never heard of), why not setup RAID with all the HDD inside one computer?

never heard of clustering also andjmacacali is right I was going towards a raid but I wanted to see if the computers could take it if he was going to use both for the website.
