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?

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

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

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
java -jar 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?
