What to do with SLP?

Situation: Netware 6.5 Sp6 cluster with 4 nodes.

We are placing all services from our other servers to the new cluster.
DNS, DHCP and printservices are easy, but what to do with SLP. Somebody
mentioned "http://support.novell.com/techcenter/articles/ana20031002.html"
but it seems more something for NW6 instead of 6.5.
DNS and DHCp are very easy on the cluster but SLP isn't in the
documentation. How do other configure SLP on a cluster? 1 DA on one off
the nodes our cluster the SLP service itself?

Thanks,

Clustering an SLP DA is very easy because it is purely NBDS based and
has no configuration files. What you simply do is for every node on
which the DA is able to run, you create an SLP server object, all
pointing to the same scope object. Then on all nodes that are able to
run the DA, you set the SLP interface to "FOLLOW" (the default is
FIRST). Then you crate a cluster load script that adds the IP address
for the DA and simply loads the DA. As cluster unload script, you
unload SLPDA and you remove the secondary IP address.
