all 0.6 and 0.7 versions are expected to work with 2.4 kernels.

> Also how do I tell which version of drbd is currently installed?
ask your package management system, if it was a package?
find the tarball it was build from if you built it from source?
ask drbdsetup?
load the module, look into /proc/drbd and/or syslog?
if nothing else works, run strings on the binary,
and look for something like a version number?

so. but you read the "INSTALL", right?

nope, you obviously did not read the INSTALL.
