The way I do it is using the init scripts provided by my distro (Mandriva, in this case) to start drbd and then start heartbeat. I don't see a particular benefit to starting said software from /etc/inittab for a couple of reasons: 1) The drbd init script only needs to run once (as far as I can see) on each node; if your system can't run a script reliably at boot then you have bigger things to worry about. 2) If heartbeat crashes, I'd rather know about it so I can analyse why it crashed, rather than it be respawned automatically by init and potentially cause more damage.
