Yes, we are (RHEL 5.3 just updated to 5.4)

Yes, we have been doing this for more than 2 years.  We have 2 linux boxes linked with LinuxHA and a shared external SSA disk unit.  The filesystem, virtual IP and MRTG processes fail over between the two.  The 'non-active' server hosts our Nagios installation which fails over in the opposite direction.

In fact, we now have distributed MRTG as we monitor so many metrics, and have 2 such failover pairs and a single non-failover all linked into one big virtual frontend using the Routers2 distributed-MRTG features.
