Well, I copied my compiled drbd.o file to my
/lib/modules/2.4.20-31.9smp/kernel/drivers/ directory and I can insmod
drbd.o but I can't use modprobe - probably because I'm not doing a
required step.  I changed modprobe to insmod in the drbd script and that
functions.  This probably isn't what I should do, but it works.

Still wondering what the /etc/default/drbd is for.
