LVS doesn't care what OS is running on the server machines. All it does
is rewrite the destination addresses, depending on it's simple rules, and
send it on. The Server then sends packets back through the Load Balancer,
which uses Netfilter to masquerade them as itself (so it looks like the
Load Balancer *is* the webserver).
I don't mind giving a talk on all of this at the alternate linux world.
It's simple once you get going...

balancing easy. I'd want to be cool.
