I have been trying forever to get drbd set up in our office, and I cannot figure it out. I'm starting from the very basics. I am using two VM's to test out setting up drbd, so they will be fresh installs. What specific packages do I need to download to drbd off the ground? Thanks for the help.

Ubuntu 10.04 is shipped with a kernel newer than 2.6.33, this means you already have the drbd module in your kernel. You only have to install the user land code package
On my Ubuntu 11.04 the reduced output of this command is:
Next step is configure the system.
I used DRBD in the past and I can say it gives satisfaction, provided that you understand it's not "plug and play". LINBIT's documentation helps.
