Hi all,

Dunno if this is a repeat, but...
I've just installed drbd 0.7.4 on Red Hat 9.0 / kernel 2.4.7, 
configured /etc/drbd.conf, and tried to run the init script.

	root at p4test1:~ # service drbd start
	Starting DRBD resources:    can not open /dev/drbd0: No such file or 
	can not open /dev/drbd0: No such file or directory
	... etc ...

Fixed by:

	for i in `seq 0 15` ; do mknod /dev/drbd$i b 147 $i; done

Which should prolly be done by 'make install'
