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

Well, after some fiddling it _is_ possible to compile and install drbd 
(last time I checked XenServer installation disk (v5.0U3) was out of 
sync with so called DDK, they have different kernel sources, you have to 
find the right kernel source rpm first).
BUT - XenServer and "regular" Xen have different command names (let's 
start with xe on XenServer vs xm in Xen) breaking all Heartbeat resource 
Maybe I just have overlooked something or too stupid to fix this, any 
suggestions welcome.
