Thanks for your quick replies guys.....  as for also getting the 
drbd8-source, if apt-get does not say there is an upgrade how do i 
install it via apt-get then??

I have this in my apt sources list
deb http://www.backports.org/debian etch-backports main contrib non-free

I figure that would get everything??

Have a super day everyone!
