drbd will not mount, this is the task of heartbeat or you do it manually.

  on tcube1 {
    device  = /dev/nb0
    disk    = /dev/hda6

/dev/nb0                /backup                 ext3    noauto          0 0
/dev/hda6               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

You want to have /dev/hda6 mounted as swap AND drbd-disk at the same time?
