Ben and Mark,

Thank you for your input.  I am currently fixing up my FAI configs such 
that they do not create an MD device out of two of the unused 
partitions, as I don't see any need to have the DRBD meta-disk striped 
or mirrored (unless someone has any good reason pointing to the 
contrary, e.g. significant performance gains).

Pending that, I will re-test with drbddisk and Filesystem.  Again, I 
appreciate the advice and hopefully this will yield successful results!

Best Regards,
