[wp-hackers] Question about WP on load balanced cluster

We are currently installing WP for use on our site. We have two web 
servers running IIS with a load balancer. At the moment we are just 
installing onto one server with the db on a separate server. I have 
searched but cannot find any definitive advice on how to go about 
configuring WP across two servers like this. The obvious problem is 
sessions and maintaining sessions between two separate servers. Is this 
an issue with WP and if so how can I resolve it? Is there a plugin or 
some other solution?

Any help or a point in the right direction would be much appreciated.
