Building DRBD into 2.6.17 Debian Fails

I don't really know what I am doing wrong here and its driving me up a freaking wall. I'm a noob when it comes to debian and kernel development. I am working with some newer HP servers with SATA raid arrays. I'm trying to setup two servers that are redundant high availability NFS servers using this how to. I couldn't follow this how to because the 2.6.8 kernel does not support my serial ata controller. I downloaded a custom debian installer based on that worked fine. Well now I am trying to install the DRBD, which the walkthrough is specific to the 2.6.8 kernel.

I've downloaded the source code from for the kernel and unzipped it to /usr/src/linux- I've made the symbolic link to /usr/src/linux as well. Since I couldn't get the drdb modules to build from the apt sources, i've downloaded the full tar and unzipped that under /usr/src/drbd-0.7.21.

I've tried rebuilding the kernel and making the modules into the new kernel source. I guess its best to say I don't know where to start. I did run make all under the new drbd source and it didn't fail on me. After which I went to the new kernel and built the new kernel and modules and installed the modules. That failed...

I'm willing to send some paypal cash ($20 US) too the person that can help me out. I've racked my brains to the point where it hurts now. Any takers?
