Why not just have a primary key with 2 columns, one of which is a
serial and the other is a "siteid" or "installid" that is different for
each server?<br>

there isn't "by accident" something like a unique UID like an MD5 or
something... ?

cause if there is no replication available, I'd consider this
(together with PHP)

a) replacing the serial fields by generated UID's (md5 of ID + a
string that depends on the install) 
b) start the autoincrement field at a high number in the second
install (since I can estimate that there will never by &gt; 10 000

+ store all queries that were performed &amp; run them in the
network-master afterwards.
