[wp-hackers] creating blogs across several installs

The multi-site plugin is something I've looked before but it doesn't
seem suitable because it requires that all the sites point to the same
IP address.

As I mentioned before I have 5 different IP addresses with installs
and I need to keep that for SEO purposes.

Any other ideas?
