At a minimum, you will need two servers with Server 2008 Standard/Enterprise/Datacenter licenses, as well as some type of shared storage, such as a iSCSI/Fibre Channel SAN or Direct Attached RAID array. The specific hardware needed depends on your budget, preference, and intended use. If you can elaborate on these, I'm sure that I (or someone else) would be able to suggest solutions for you.

Note that there are very few options for free/low cost shared storage and the ones that are out there are not really suitable for business production use.
