[DRBD-user] create rpm sles10 sp2 8.2.6

Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Can you please consult the rpm man page to figure out how to erase the
conflicting package from your system, so you are able to install the
DRBD module package you are building. Hint: "rpm -e".

And btw the INSTALL file is outdated,
http://www.drbd.org/users-guide/ch-build-install-from-source.html (and
subsequent pages) is more elaborate. I guess we ought to remove the
INSTALL page from upcoming releases or include a note that says it's
been superseded by the content found at said URL.

Hope this helps.
