please use 0.6.13 with those ancient kernels.
they lack some defines that we use naturally.
and I am just too lazy to go over the 0.7 code
and make it compile with redhat 2.4.9-whatever,
because I am already in the process of dropping
all 2.4 compatibility for the upcomming drbd 0.8.

I know that 0.6.13 works fine with it, if you follow INSTALL.

or use a more recent kernel.
