Dunno, but the rough chain of events:

- run mkzeoinstance that came with your zope software
- copy your two .fs files to the new zeo instance
- tweak etc/zeo.conf in your zeo instance to serve them both up
- run mkzopeinstance on your clients to create zope instances
- make sure you have all your products installed on both zope instances
- tweak the zope.conf for both instances to mount the storages as 
ClientStorage rather than FileStorage
