direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

For testing purposes I've created a set of backport packages (drbd
version 0.8.24) for Debian Etch, based on the current package sources in
experimental. You can find them at https://guust.tuxes.nl/~bas/drbd/

(use them at your own risk!)

After installation of the both the drbd8-utils and drbd8-source
packages, you will have to build the kernel module using Debian's
module-assistant tool:
> module-assistant auto-install drbd8-source

The module and utils are working for me, but I haven't performed any
stress testing.
