I don't know if you're like me, but I like building my kernel from scratch. Here's a brief summary of how I go about it with Debian Sarge: 1. Install kernel-package, libncurses5-dev, gcc, cpp, binutils, drbd0.7-module-source and drbd0.7-utils. 2. Get Linux 2.6 source from kernel.org. 3. Extract Linux kernel source and /usr/src/drbd0.7.tar.gz. 4. Configure your Linux kernel. 5. Build Debian package of custom-built kernel using the following command from the directory where your Linux kernel sources are # make-kpkg kernel_image 6. Build Debian package of modules using the following command from the directory where your linux kernel sources are. # make-kpkg modules_image 7. Install the two Debian packages (kernel image and DRBD modules). 8. Configure DRBD, Heartbeat, and whatever else you need.
