There isn't support for DRBD in-distro for RHEL. In order to use it, you
would need a Driver Update Disk. Various disks have been made (indeed, I
think you can get one from Linbit, and I'm pretty sure the ELrepo
project just released some, too), so you could start with those.

If you are running RHEL, feel free to drop me a line off-list and we can
discuss Driver Update Disks in more detail. If you are sticking with
your current distribution, I suggest looking at the suggestions I gave
above and seeing where that takes you.
