correct me if im wrong, but doesnt a medium  farm require 2 web/search, 1
index/job, and 1 sql instance?

you can do log shipping, or sql replication. the sql2005 options for
non-clustered redundancy are seemingly top notch.

why cant you just use clustering?

SharePoint is agnostic about SQL, so whatever you need to do to cluster SQL is what you’ll need to do SharePoint shouldn’t care at all about this.

Medium farms can have either one or two WFE servers.

you can't really do a mirror... it must be a SQL cluster. we tried to do log shipping for site replication, but it was a no go.
