How do I download and install DRBD?

How do I download and install DRBD?
I tried http://www.drbd.org/download/packages/

But I have centos OS 5.5 6.4 bit and need step by step directions to do this from the shell. Can someone help?

you have to download first the file from the server you specified in your question:

wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/extras/x86_64/RPMS/drbd83-8.3.8-1.el5.centos.x86_64.rpm

from that site...

CentOS has had DRBD 8 since release 5; DRBD 0.7 was included release 4.

DRBD can be installed using yum (note that you will need the extras repository enabled for this to work):

yum install drbd kmod-drbd

I did this and it did not work I got this message

drbd-8.0.16-5.el5.centos.x86_64 from extras has depsolving problems
  --> drbd conflicts with drbd82
Error: drbd conflicts with drbd82
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.

yum install heartbeat drbd kmod-drbd

if you did: wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/extras/x86_64/RPMS/drbd83-8.3.8-1.el5.centos.x86_64.rpm

then now do: rpm -i  drbd83-8.3.8-1.el5.centos.x86_64.rpm

The console isn't a web interface and it is a different software.

wget http://oss.linbit.com/drbd-mc/DMC-0.8.12.jar

we can walk you through some things, but if you are going to be setting up something as technical as a drbd server, don't you think you need to read and understand what you are doing rather than just having us tell you every keystroke?

I feel a little installed by that comment but oh well

I have it installed and not sure what to do next

Thanks for the help. I just am trying to avoid the $5,000 something rout for there support and install services.
