I'm sure it's been done. I would imagine that you just need to add  the
connection strings and membership and role providers  to the appropriate web
configs. You will likely have to extend the web  application again for the new
Authentication scheme also.

if I extend again, then I have to use a different URL. This is an issue to users
since they have to remember two sites. Also the client  intention is to implement
some failover, this is, if SQL fails, it can pick up from ADAM.

any more suggestions?

To use the same URL with two different authentication  systems you will need to
write a single custom authentication provider that can talk to both back end

You can only have one authentication  provider per ZONE. To add  another FBA
provider you will need to either extend the web  application to another zone or
write a custom authentication provider that works with both ADAM and SQL.

I will look how I can utilize LDAP
membership and ASP membership providers  in custom code, if anyone has done this
before, I would appreciate any help.
