RH 5 cluster fence problem on Vitual box

I created 3 test machine and made them into cluster.
On Virtual
"Virtual Machine Manager 0.9.0"
Machines them selves are CentOS 5.11.

<cluster name="mycluster" config_version="3">
     <clusternode name="one" nodeid="1">
     <clusternode name="two" nodeid="2">
     <clusternode name="three" nodeid="3">
When I start cman service. I see get this:

[root@one ~]# time service cman restart
Stopping cluster: 
   Stopping fencing... done
   Stopping cman... done
   Stopping ccsd... done
   Unmounting configfs... done
                                                           [  OK  ]
Starting cluster:

well if you ARE using RH5
the redhat os that came out in 1997
you WILL have a problem

RH5 ( Hurricane) is from 1997 ( 1 December 1997)
it is 18 years OLD
and has been unsupported for over a decade

I have to test thing in RH 5 environment. No choice there.
I remember I create similar cluster last year and did testing, But I don't have that confg
saved. I wonder if dummy ACP fence would work.

This issue is resolved. I used luci web interface to create cluster. It worked.
Resulting cluster.conf file looks like this.
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<cluster alias="TEA" config_version="1" name="TEA">
	<fence_daemon post_fail_delay="0" post_join_delay="3"/>
		<clusternode name="three" nodeid="1" votes="1"/>
		<clusternode name="two" nodeid="2" votes="1"/>
		<clusternode name="one" nodeid="3" votes="1"/>
