with drbd 0.6 not neccessary, but stongly recommended.
for reasons easily found in the archives.

with drbd 0.7: don't do that anymore (I think you cannot, we disabled
that in drbd.conf, though drbdsetup still knows about that parameter in
case it is needed...)

should be easy to find searching the archive...

anyways, fdisk -s /dev/sdc1 or whatever you use as lower level device.
(and just in case, round it down so it is a multiple of 4k, or some
filesystem implementations may later be confused (nothing to do with
drbd, but...)
