'Completely' is not possible, and I would not like it.
Think about the content of /proc, or hardware/kernel related messages in
The only possibility (which I know) to fully sync a root / is, to run it
as a guest in XEN or vserver. This means having DRBD and the cluster
manager running in the host, and booting the guest at failover.
IMHO there should be a serious need for virtualization. Just syncing the
installed packages and the configuration is _not_ a serious reason.
