How can I configure Network Load Balancing for multiple SharePoint 2010 web servers?

I googled and binged and there are not many resources I could find on doing this for SharePoint 2010.

Can anyone point me to some useful resouces? I am pretty new to the IT Pro side of SharePoint - any general guidelines would also be useful.

See here for the Network Load Balancing Deployment Guide. And specific to SharePoint 2010 see here: SharePoint 2010 Network Load Balancing. You have to configure the the NLB nodes to use Multicast mode, that seems to be the conclusion.
