I'm not sure what's available in RHCS but I recently accomplished your 
goal in an active-active format (although i'd much rather have done 
active-passive) using Heartbeat2 and a shared drive with DRBD. If you 
would like more information please contact me.

The only problem i've noticed is with DRBD and OCFS2, apparently Ubuntu 
(in contrast to Suse(SLES) and Redhat (RLES)) currently lacks OCFS2 
Userspace drives in the 2.6.24 kernel. This means heartbeat can't manage 
your OCFS2 resource (but it can manage DRBD if you take care of the 
OCFS2 drivers yourself) until at least 2.6.25 when i'm told the drivers 
are likely to make their way in to Ubuntu.
