I did the same last weekend, but my version does not work at all.

I changed this "hardcoded" just to step forward.

Try this mini-HOWTO:
But be aware, 2.6.6 needed nearly 3 hours to compile on my Celeron 600,
2.4 needs only 1 hour.
It is not necessary to compile the kernel, if you install the matching
kernel-source. You can compile the modules seperately with
but you should understand the steps before.

My version of drbd/debian/ compiles the module, but fails to install it.
As the debian 2.6.6 kernel does not compile in my environment as it
should (missing some links), I will set up a fresh sarge with vanilla
2.6.6, to be sure, if I misconfigured something, or if debian
kernel-source has a bug. But I have not enough time this week.

Including a half working /debian in drbd-CVS would be better, than
having a non working.
Sometimes next week I hopefully will have more time and try your
version, merge it with mine etc. But if David provides a working one
before, I will test his version, as I am totally unexperienced in packaging.
