I think you're playing with fire when you choose to do this. You dilute your
PageRank and make maintenance a pain, although you can set up a subsite
with FTP access for the content 'partner'.
In general, you will /have/ to create some linkage between both sites (at
one level or another). Will this linkage be any better than a link exchange
(which I am against on general)? I think not. In fact, you are spreading
links among two separate sources, which will result in penalties and lower
ranks due to fewer incoming links to each.
