I tried this some months ago for Torque, but failed. Looks like, as  
mentioned by Stewart Samuels in an earlier thread, TORQUE uses the  
gethostbyname routine to identify the host and therefore, when  
failingover, you eventually must have the failover node be identified  
as the original system. Which is not the ideal thing to do in a  
heartbeat environment.
