you should be able to just make 2 (or more) A records for the same thing pointing to 2 (or more) IP addresses:
Code:
www   IN   A   192.168.0.1
www   IN   A   192.168.0.2
...and so on.

For mail, give all of your mail servers the same preference:
Code:
            IN   MX   10   mail1.mydomain.com
            IN   MX   10   mail2.mydomain.com

mail1   IN   A   192.168.0.2
mail2   IN   A   192.168.0.2
