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

The documentation you read accords to drbd version 0.6.x
With 0.7 the syntax of the configuration file 
has been almost complete changed (new syntax, new commands,
new bahavior).

You can find the link to up-to-date, valid 0.7 drbd configuration
somewhere in the archive. Search last two-three months.

AFAIK the good example is the file /usr/share/doc/drbd/drbd.conf, or so.
