James, didn't know that s-c-cluster wasn't updated, good to know, not a
problem as I like the command line anyway :)

I did know about the nodeid so that's good to go. 

Thanks for the heads up on s-c-cluster

EEk. s-c-cluster is NOT updated completely for rhel5 cluster in the beta 
1 release - Sorry, Corey.

Are you aware that each node needs an explicit 'nodeid' attribute value 
in the conf file, in addition to the name attribute? This just needs to 
be a unique integer value...a simple enumeration of the nodes, 1, 2, 3...
