Clustering via Shared Storage

My organization has discussed clustering via shared storage. We are using shared storage for not only the database, but our web cluster as well. We wanted to utilize an application like RHEL's cluster manager and have the database machines be included in two clusters.

ONe would be a read cluster. All of the nodes in the read cluster will have the queries load balanced across them. The other cluster would be a write cluster. This would be a active-backup cluster. One machine would be a write server, and when that machine failed another node would take over it's responsibilities.

All machines would be connected to teh SAN either through FC or iSCSI. The filesystem would be GFS so we wouldn't have to worry if an accident occurs or things of that nature. Does anyone know if something of that nature would work, or if they are doing it?it?
