This might be bad netiquette to post on the GFS mailing list, but you
might look at oracle's OCFS2. I was able to get it up and running in a
single day, its in the latest 2.6.20 kernel and then you just need to
download the 1.2.2 tools from their website.

It was much easier to get up and running. For that matter I was never
able to get GFS working or compile after 6 days. I have yet to try
since stable was updated.

Just another option to look at.
