ummmm. are /usr or /var already mount points? what error was it giving 
you? also, using drbd to replicate /usr or /var is not a good idea for 
the same reasons using drbd for / has been frowned upon by the list. the 
secondary server wont be able to boot properly due to the fact that the 
secondary is essentially locked out from using the drbd block device and 
therefore unable to mount the filesystem. maybe doing something specific 
underneath these directories like /var/www but you probably shouldn't do 
/usr or /var.
