Generally, I think that the 'floating ip' refers to a system like this:

BOX1: IP              BOX2: IP
            Floating IP:

The floating IP will be listened to by whichever box is active at the
time.  If that box dies, the other box takes up the address.
This way, you can configure a highly available IP that might actually be
on multiple boxes.
