figured out how to attach my servers (running CentOS 5.5) to attach to

other, but it's not working that way. How can I make this work?

There is not iscsi level multipath. You have to log into both portals, then use something like dm-multipath and multipath-tools (in RHEL the rpms is called device-mapper-multipath-tools) to load balance or failover across the iscsi paths.
