Thanks,
But I have found the following howto 
http://linuxha.trick.ca/DRBD_2fHowTo_2fInstall I did it slight different 
from this how to, I will try to compile it again and if it then still 
isn't working I will be back with the Console output.
Before I start drbd do I need to load the module manually (insmod 
drbd)??
I have read that somebody had to do this before starting drbd, I have 
tested drbd 0.6.xx on a suse 9 Linux machine there it was not needed.
Do you now what I need to change in the drbd/linux/drbd_config.h?? I 
guess that I will take a look at it tomorrow.

Regards
RobH
