understand the concept of, and difference between,
file system and block device.

read the drbd documentation.
understand the documentation.

if you think it is misleading, unclear, incomplete, or even plain wrong,
tell us where, and why you think so.
then we can improve it.

read README, INSTALL, and upgrade-*
in the drbd tarball/svn checkout/wherever.
really read the upgrade-* files! don't miss it...

have a look at

the article refers to drbd 0.6, so the drbd.conf and some minor things have
changed, but the concept should be clear.
