Fun with SQL Server clustering

"Are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
"Well, I think so, Brain, but first you'd have to take that whole bridge apart, wouldn't you?"

Learned alot about SQL Server clustering yesterday. Like why SQL Server instance names are always preceded by the netbios name. How the Microsoft cluster API can be interfaced and the differences in registry layout relating to clustered versus non-clustered instances.

Trying to figure out what the whole picture looks like so I can figure out how to integrate it, and hopefully not have to redesign the entire existing system.
