nothing against SuSE 9.3,
but the drbd that is packaged with it is not really usable,
it is a snapshot of our development tree.

so, no they don't work together,
since one of them is non-existent (yet)

once we officially release the next drbd, which will probably not be named 0.8
(which is our current development branch, and is NOT yet ready for
production, and still a moving code base), it _may_ have backwards
compatibility code to be able to do rolling upgrades of a 0.7 cluster to
the new version.
