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

we are not too much developers, you know. and we do this mostly unpaid.
writing documentation takes a lot of time.  updating every stale howto
found by google is not easy either. yes, we should probably update or
drop the howto that is included in the tgz.

but there is this http://linuxha.trick.ca/DRBD_2fQuickStart07

maybe it is not prominently linked to, in the README included in the
tgz, it mentions the http://linuxha.trick.ca/DRBD page.

if you want to help us improve documentation, either sent patches,
or feel free to add/improve some DRBD or other howtos on
