Hi Lars,

   Yes once I remove the udev rule for drbd the whole "wierd" links things goes away, and all my devices work as expected again. So without relying on udev what were most people doing to create the /dev/drbd0 at boot? Can I do something as simple as adding a mknod command in /etc/rc.d/rc.local? I have one last question: upon a reboot my primary node does not come up as primary, I have to issue an 'drbdadm primary r0' to get it to come up. Is this normal?

   I can work around the udev thing I am sure, but for many reasons I think I am going to try all of this under CentOS 5.2 x86_64. I have been pushing to move up to this version for a while now and this udev issue helped seal the deal with "those who make the decisions" at my company.

Thanks for a the help, I certainly appreciate it! I have to prove to my company that this will work for us before I can get them to approve buying a support contract so your 'free' assistance on this was a huge help to me!
