    As I have understand you want to install one web site on two servers: Unix and Windows and this sites should have the same name. In this case you should configure DNS to have A records with both IPs. Also round robin option should be turned on at DNS server. This option means that DNS server will alternate with IPs of the same name.

    Just install Windows 2003 with that IP's then Plesk and then set up website on it.

    well i had it setup but i had to have my dns on the linux box point to the windows box. even then the dns on the windows box would not resolve the webs.

    there has to be a post or some newby instruction area that covers this

    I don't know how to do it on Linux but on Windows you should create replication between DNS servers and use Plesk server as primary and another server as secondary.
