direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

after my drbd install I'm getting the following error during modprobe drbd

dyanne:~# modprobe drbd
/lib/modules/2.4.26-rc3/kernel/drivers/block/drbd.o: init_module: Device or 
resource busy
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including 
invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
insmod /lib/modules/2.4.26-rc3/kernel/drivers/block/drbd.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.26-rc3/kernel/drivers/block/drbd.o: insmod drbd failed

dmesg shows:

drbd: initialised. Version: 0.6.12 (api:64/proto:62)
drbd: Unable to get major 43

any tips?
